Didn't know you grew up in Ohio. Small town?

By the way, I grew up only 12 hours east of Ashtabula.

Two small towns, actually. One right next to the other.

I looked at Ashtabula on Google and was surprised the images showed no winter scenes. On the lake and in Ohio makes for some fierce winter weather.

12 hours by what type of motion?

That might be 4000 miles by plane, or 700 miles by car or 25 miles by walking?

You must have missed my post about having spent six weeks in North Dakota - quiet place.

I've been to North Dakota. I recall the airport at Fargo with some amusement from a same-day business trip there (fly out in the morning, back in the evening). When I returned to the airport after a day of work, I just wanted to get to my gate and get settled, and then maybe have a bite to eat. There were only two gates in the airport, and when I walked up to security, the area was walled off. I went to the only restaurant in the airport and asked what the deal was and they said, "oh, there's no flight taking off for another hour or so, so we'll open security later." So, I had a burger and sure enough, after 20 minutes or so, a single figure went to the security area and opened it up.

It was actually a very pleasant airport. There couldn't have been more than 20 people in the airport while I was there, if memory serves.

Does google maps often show winter scenes?

Used chamber of commerce or such website. With regard to weather it reminded me of living in Vegas where the official outdoor temp was taken at the airport on an antenna 100' above ground level. When the news reported 110 to lure tourists in it was considered a laugh to look at one's residence outside temp of 118-120. City promotion to attract visitor revenue is the same everywhere.
