72 degrees on Tuesday. Snow today. No joke.

This could happen in Kansas City, too. Because it DID. A few weeks back, we had a thunderstorm in the wee hours, then later that morning it rained, then the sun came out. Squee!

I just adore your site, BTW. It brings back all the haunting memories from my various math and statistics classes in college. Lovely.

I'm in columbus and it was pretty freakin nuts. I wish winter wasn't so spastic.

I had no idea you're in Ohio.

And I hate that our nice weather left us.

Jessica said...

I'm in Columbus too. Between the OSU students drunkenly falling into High Street right in front of my building and the insane weather, I'm hiding for the rest of the week.

Ben said...

No way! I'm in Columbus, too. Now I see why your cards apply so perfectly to my life.

Jessica Hagy said...

Then we Columbusites should all meet up somewhere.

Definitely! Just name a time and place.

I owe you a drink... your cards, hanging on my cube wall, have given hope to my tiny beige corner of the universe. :)

GASP!!!

Ben has a crush on Jessica!
Ben has a crush on Jessica!
He's gonna buy her dri-inks
then get her liquored u-up!
then they're gonna fi-ight...

Then we're gonna see a whole bunch of circles with bad words on them and the big E circle that encloses them will be "E = Ben"

awwwww... poor Ben!


(and I had such high hopes for you two!)

Ben said...

Wow Joanna. Wow.

Actually, it was more in homage to the "Why you drink" cartoon in my cube that so many of my coworkers - traveling on the company tab - admire 9-5 and live 5-9.

I'm no longer in Columbus, but I was born and raised there and it remains a very big part of me. No wonder I loved your work from the first moment. Too funny.

While I'm at it, thanks for the deeper thoughts, the lighter laughs, and the all-around warm glow your posts give to me and my life. I look forward to them each and every day.

Hell, that's normal weather in Colorado...
This one actually occurred when Finley was playing for Houston and the Astros visited Colorado during the Rockies' inaugural season in 1993. Finley and Gonzalez checked into their hotel about midnight, then went to the Hooters downstairs to have some wings and a beer while enjoying the 70-degree weather outside.

The next morning, Finley recalls, his phone rang at 8:30. It was his buddy Gonzalez, telling him to look out the window.

"We got eight inches of snow," Finley said. "I remember going to the ballpark and it was 30 degrees and thinking, 'What are we doing here?' The next day, it was 70 and sunny again, and all the snow had melted."


And that was in September.

Damn! I'm in Columbus, too (Dublin)! You ROCK! Are you FROM Columbus or did you just come here for school?

Brandie said...

Hah! Count me in as part of the Columbus crew too. I almost cried when I saw the snowflakes yesterday.

gaga said...

Y'all all need to move to Atlanta. My windows have been open day and night for the past 4 or 5 days.

Eric said...

As a French friend of mine says "In England, you have nice weather several times per day".

I'm in Ohio too and I have to say that this card made my day! I had no idea you were from the area. Very awesome.

Eyre said...

Dam straight, Columbus here, too!

Eyre said...

Rockin'. Columbus here, too!

Columbus / Athens myself. Way to represent central OH. Your stuff is great!

Anne said...

Yeah, weather in Columbus sucks right now. I'm looking forward to May... it might be less schizophrenic by then. I want the sunshine and warmth back. It felt so nice...

Werdna648 said...

Heh, I was in OH for two months last year in April/May. So think wiping out the 'sunshine' and 'snow' circles and you've got my experience there.

Jessica said...

We should meet up! It would be so very fun!

Brandie said...

Nothing like bitching about the weather to drag all the Columbusites out of the closet. :)

aet said...

That is March in Ohio. I lived there all my life, with the exception of the past 2 1/2 year which have been in SF. March has always gotten that "fake" springtime that gets squashed with a huge snow storm. The daffodils always poke their heads up just in time to freeze and turn to a yellow, droopy mess on the sidewalk. Funny thing is... I totally miss it.

Another Ohioan here (NorthWest). One thing about Ohio, if you don't like the weather, wait a bit, it'll change :).

Todd said...

Ohio born and raised here too.

Eric Meyer said...

Hey, just popping in to represent the Cleveland area (and my hometown: Lexington, OH), and add my congratulations and thanks for having and sharing such an awesome idea.

Joe said...

Rain, sun, and snow in one day isn't terribly unusual anywhere. As long as it's not cloudy all day and the temp. hovers around freezing it'll happen.

heather said...

<-- not from Columbus, never even been to Ohio, but I want to meet Jessica too! Maybe when you go on tour with your book... You have a friend in Charlotte, NC!

just emailed you, have posted here b4, but not posting my name now ;) said...

That's why I left Columbus for Vancouver, BC, CANADA!!!!

Paul said...

It actually happened. Today. There is 3 inches of snow, and its may 24th.

Rachael said...

From columbus and moving back soon - I find it amazing and reassuring that so many people who read your blog are from Ohio, after all it does take a little bit of brainpower to fully enjoy some of these ;)

Keep up the good work - I added the Mac widget to my desktop :)

Try 85 one day, then snow on the ground the next. All's fair in Texas!
