    I figured that a plea asking people to complain less about weather wouldn’t be up your alley. ;)

    Has Central Ohio weather jumped the shark?

    haha, definitely not, but if you’re that affected by weather (I am) then you should do something about it.

    I read a few things from the article and title of this thread. Should people complain less about the weather? Yes, of course or again, do something about it and go somewhere with better weather that suits you.

    Though contextual and depending on the person, generally the other points in the article “positioning Ohio weather as an asset” and “best year-round weather” are a huge stretch and would unnecessarily draw more attention to what is a big competitive disadvantage.

    Two things about Ohio weather…

    1. Columbus doesn’t have it worst.

    2. Our nice days are really nice and even more appreciated because of our shitty ones.

    I like the comment that reads, “No sir, this is actually a depiction of Ohio.”

    I guess the issue I have with the complaints come from the people who have no plans on moving (doing something about it). To some people (and I’m plenty guilt of this as well) the weather is a conversational crutch and the things I hear people in Columbus casually and conversationally complaining about is trivial at best.

    “Oh, would you look at that rain today? Typical Columbus!”

    “Could you believe that drive this morning? I was a whole 15 minutes late! This Columbus snow is terrible!”

    I could do with less of that sort of thing I guess.

    Yeah, I admit I used an attention-grabbing thread title to spark some discussion. I don’t honestly believe we have the best year round weather, but it’s certainly not as bad as other places. And while it could be considered a competitive disadvantage, I don’t think that’s stopped other cities with worse winters (Chicago? Boston? New York?) or rainier climates (Seattle?) from becoming cities where people want to live regardless of the weather.

    If my health insurance wasn’t tied to my job, I’d be in San Diego right now, but just “doing something about it” isn’t that simple. In the meantime, I reserve the right to complain about ice storms and humid summer days.

    I broke my wrist when I slipped on the un-salted short north sidewalk this winter, is that an okay thing for me to complain about?

    You two are free to complain about whatever you like.

    Hope your wrist is healed up, Jim.
