Got Snow? – 2015 Snow Removal Scam

2015 Got Snow Flyer Front

I’m back again today with a post I was hoping not to have to write this year. For the past few years I’ve been on sort of a personal crusade against a company doing business under the name of Got Snow? or Got Snow Services. Got Snow is at least the 3rd name this company has been known by.  In 2008, I was taken by this scam when they were going by the name of The Snowplow … Continue reading

Proof We Have More Colors Than Just Gray

No More Gray In Cleveland

Wintertime in Cleveland can be downright dreary.  I’ve lived here for a long time so I try REALLY hard not to be the person complaining about the weather in Northeast Ohio.  After all… it’s CLEVELAND.  What did we expect?  This winter hasn’t even been that terrible with the exception of a couple of nasty snowstorms.  That said, I’m still super excited for Spring to hit this year.  It’s just been so gray for so long. Luckily … Continue reading

The Terminal Tower – All Decked Out

The Terminal Tower at Christmas

If there is one building that’s iconic to Cleveland, it’s the Terminal Tower.  One of the thing that I LOVE about the Tower is when it’s lit up in the Cleveland night.  Throughout the year how it’s lit changes based on the time of year, activities around town, etc.  This particular image was snapped during the holidays this past year when the Tower was decked out in traditional Christmas colors.  Love it! What other color schemes have you … Continue reading

White Out in February

White Out in February

As previously stated, the weather in Cleveland can be a bit um… sporadic at best. Today is one of those days when we’re on the “good lord it’s crappy out” side of the spectrum.  The morning drive was super difficult as we got hit with some lake effect snow and wind which produced this nice little white out. This pic was snapped (while essentially sitting still) on I-480 West during morning rush hour.  Man was … Continue reading

It’s often been said that if you don’t like the weather in Cleveland, all you have to do is wait a little while.  This past week we had spring like sun, mist, rain, fog, snow and ice… all in a 24 hour period. This wouldn’t be nearly as funny if it wasn’t so true! That’s Cleveland Baby!!!

Running Out Of Gas In A Traffic Jam

Out Of Gas

So the other night I was driving home from work and I noticed that I was getting a bit low on gas. When I get below a quarter of a tank or so I start thinking about where/when I’m going to fill up next. (For iPhone users out there, check out the app GasBuddy. It’ll save you a TON of money at the pump.) I was running a bit late as the wife had to … Continue reading
