There is a certain kind of romance involved with airports. A good example comes from the foggy airport scene in the film, “Casablanca,” (“Here’s looking at you, kid.”). When I think of airports, I usually think of the adventure it leads to. If you have never had the opportunity to fly on a commercial flight […]

It will be a very active week in Ohio with the first half of the week staying above freezing, but the back half turns much colder with some snow. While the details are still several days away from getting sharp, I focus on the most likely period that will give NEOhio the greatest chance for […]
