You Know All 4 Seasons: Winter, Still Winter, Almost Winter & Road Construction


Cleveland, post blizzard

North Coast Harbor

For as long as I have lived in or around Cleveland, I can honestly say that one thing in this city that is never consistent is its weather. Now don’t get me wrong, I am aware to the fact that it tends to get much colder in other places, such as Chicago or even New York City, but for the love of God, have you ever spent a year in Cleveland weather? I don’t even know if I could even begin to encapsulate how deviant it really is.

I’m sure all of us have been acquainted with those god awful orange cones that never seem to abscond no matter how long construction has been going on. I know first hand how relentless the orange bastards are, one of them ripped the side mirror off of my very first car. I’ve seen people fly like a bat out of hell in their cars full speed at those damn cones and they always seem to do more damage to the car than the car to the cone.

We have the weather to thank for this though! When it snows, the snow plows come out (sometimes…), they plow the street and throw down salt (hopefully…), they manage to tear up half the street on their way because the broke ass city couldn’t afford to repave the street. They just kept piling on tar and gravel until it looked like a car would make it over without falling in a 5 foot deep pothole. It’s a never-ending cycle that will always be there. If you live in Cleveland, you know this. If you plan on moving to Cleveland, you better take some crash courses in driving through snow/hell 101 because you’re in for a wild ride!

All in all, I still love this city. You really do get used to the biting cold after a while, plus if you look on the bright side, at least it’s not Antarctica or anything!
