November 11, 2011 – Friday 5

Well, we tried to stave off as long as possible, but Cleveland got its first snow last night, and a few smatterings again during the day here on the east side. In true Snow Belt fashion, all of the snow was still clinging to the grass when I got home, unlike at work, where most of it had melted.

I’m surprised that it didn’t cause any major traffic upset: I’m not sure how we managed it, but it’s like we here in Cleveland totally forget how to drive in snow every year, even though we seemingly get it for 9 months a year. I’m hoping this is a good sign for the months to come.

Onwards, to the Friday5!

  1. What do you usually take to the beach?
    Usually a huge bag with a towel, loads of sunscreen (seriously, I glow in the dark), a book (or two), a drink (or two), a coverup, maybe my iPod, and flip flops.
  2. What do you find essential for a trip to the mall?
  3. What’s something you take to the ballgame?
    Probably a book. I can’t stand watching live sporting events.
  4. What do you take to the movies?
    I’ll admit it: on occasion, I have been known to take 20 oz of Diet Coke in my large purse with me….
  5. This one may not have broad enough a relevance, but what do you take when you go to the symphony?
    I’ve been to Severance Hall a few times, and when I have gone, I just take some cash, my phone, and a few calling cards in case I strike up a conversation with someone that may prove fruitful later.
