Snowy Days Ahead!

There was a report about a week ago that revealed that Lake Erie has yet to freeze — something that is usually well under way by this time in January. In fact, the report indicated that Lake Erie is usually roughly 40% frozen by mid-January. 

In 2020, however, the lake freezing has been delayed. What this could mean is that we’ll soon be seeing some wild winter storms and lake effect snow rolling across Cleveland, Akron and Toledo. And southern Ohio cities like Columbus and Dayton are likely to see some freezing rain. 

Between the rain and snow, hopefully Ohioans will be able to slip out for a few cannabis-themed events we’ve collected this week. But if a storms hits … stay safe! Do you have a cannabis or CBD/hemp-themed event you’d like to see publicized? Let us know in the comments below.
