Watching the 11:00 news during our first night on town … I busted up laughing when the weather man said something that just struck me as perfectly silly. “There could be some morning cloud cover, but don’t freak out … It should only be the morning!”

Now, for us Michigan or Ohio folk, a morning in February with the possibility of a little morning cloud cover is certainly nothing new. In fact, the opposite statement could apply for us (“now, the sun could peek out in the morning … Don’t freak out!”) as we almost never see the sun in Cleveland from December through mid-March. But I particularly loved the plea to not “freak out” because a bit of cloud cover might ruin your life temporarily.

By the way … Weather man’s name: Mark Van Winkle. I can’t make this stuff up!
