My family and rollercoasters

I have four children and they are split 50-50 as far as their enjoyment of rollercoasters. 

The thrill of the climb, the shock of the drop, the blood rushing through their veins – two of them enjoy every moment of the experience, but two not so much.  They were all raised in a similar environment, have common parents, same gene pool, etc. but two of them have a stomach for risk and two do not. 


Weather delay

Interstate 75 northbound shift to three lanes in Findlay

A traffic shift on Interstate 75 northbound between U.S. 224 and county Road 99, Findlay, to three lanes was delayed this morning due to weather.

Crews had planned to shift I-75 northbound, just prior to the U.S. 224 interchange, over to the new three lanes on the northbound side this morning. The shift was dependent upon the placement of pavement markings, which could not occur due to rain overnight.

The switch is anticipated to occur next week if suitable weather exists.
