Harsh Winds, Hail Harken Back to 1993

power outages due to wind, July 26, 2018
Today Euclid and most of Cuyahoga and Geauga counties experienced some driving winds, rain, and hail. There are trees down in my neighborhood and half of East 260th has no power, but there are crews all over working to remedy that.

Happy Independence Day

Happy 4th of July, former and current Euclidites!

The Euclid police department doesn't want you to blow anything important off in the name of freedom this year, nor did they want to deal with your patriotic nonsense in 1938!


The jail has gotten larger in these last 80 years, but otherwise the more things change...

Be safe this 4th of July!

Abandoned Hillandale Bridge: Debunking the Myths & Uncovering the History

Huhnke, Christopher
Many people have had conversations about the "abandoned Hillandale bridge to nowhere" or the "abandoned Euclid bridge" and lots of people have made the short trek down there, either with or without spray paint in hand.

It's got many things going for it that make it a unique area. The bridge itself is large in scale and smacks of the era in which it was built. It is traversable without special equipment and is fairly safe if you're being careful. It's attained centenarian status.

The glacial cut ground doesn't look much different today than it did before the first white man went exploring. Money was poured into a bridge that was built to allow car traffic to a development that promised "high grade homes" that never, ever came into existence.
