Tour de Parks: Melting In His Clutch

In March when the starting gun sounded on the Tour de Parks, I felt frozen. For several weeks afterward Snow Miser kept it below 40 degrees and kept freezing the area during my weekend park walking time.

This past weekend Heat Mizer forced me to cancel the Tour as I was melting in his clutch. Temperatures were upper 80’s / lower 90’s with the heat index at least as high and maybe even 101 degrees. I barely got the backyard mowed Saturday morning.

So we will see what this weekend brings and hopefully I can safely resume my walking through one of Northeast Ohio’s lovely parks, photographing all God created.

Walking in the parks is fun and I encourage everyone to get out there and walk a park in your neighborhood. You never know what you will discover and the endorphins will help you beat up the grief miser, if you are grieving.

To get you in the walking mood, here is a picture I took yesterday of my lunchroom buddy.

Enjoy and get moving!
