Most bloggers in their right minds would do as Maggie suggested in the comments of my last post, "Get a cup of hot coffee and stay warm on the Blogs."
But nobody ever accused me of being in my right mind, so I took the WIXYcam, hopped in the WIXYmobile and drove around town, snapping some pictures. In the first photo, is the WIXYmobile in the driveway at the WIXYranch. City crews were out trying to make all the streets passable
This photo was taken at the corner of Main Street and Ohio Avenue, considered as "downtown Rittman"
Rittman, Ohio is the only town in the United Staates with that name. It's original name was Milton Station, but was changed to it's present name after Frederick Rittman, treasurer of the railroad that went through town.
The long time regulars have seen this location during the spring and summer months. I write quite a bit about the Rittman IGA. Too bad Donny Foutty, the owner, wasn't in town to enjoy the weather. He is currently in Arizona participating in the Cleveland Indians fantasy camp.
No city business could be conducted today as city hall was closed due to the weather.
State route 57 runs past Rittman and is maintained by the Ohio Department of Transportation. It's the main route between Rittman, Orrville and interstate 76. Usually the crews take good care of the road, at least until you get to the Wayne/Medina County line, which is about a mile north of where I took this photo
Back home, I took this photo from my front porch. Just reminds me that I have to shovel my driveway. I'm also looking forward to when I have to mow around that tree.
