Yesterday our new Governor provided some words of wisdom about the weather to winter-weary Ohioans. As usual, Marc Kovac captures it all.

Here’s the advice Kasich provided:

If you don’t have to drive, don’t.

Secondly, if you have to go out because you don’t have enough food – go out, stock up. Do not be eating things that have been sitting in the refrigerator for two weeks. We don’t want anybody getting sick.

Thirdly, if you do have to drive somewhere, make sure you have the kind of clothes in the car that you need.

And fourthly, there is a significant possibility of significant outages. And, if you’re going to experience outages, temperatures are going to drop. So, if you need to go somewhere, to a neighbor or whatever, you’re going to need to prepare – extra blankets, some candles – I’m not a big fan of candles, but uh, make sure you can control them and blow them out. But we just need to be prepared like the old Boy Scouts motto: “be prepared.”

Great advice, John. I feel so much more prepared now.

p.s. I’m very much looking forward to the response from Ohio’s candle making trade organization.

    I think he just likes to hear himself talk. He should be required to read from a telepromter at ALL times. His brain obviously doesn’t allow himt to think and speak at the same time; ramble ramble ramble!!!

    Nanny State.

  • As an Eagle Scout, and District Committee member and OA Chapter Adviser, I’d like to point out that there is nothing old about the Boy Scout Motto. “Be Prepared” is now, always has been, and always will be excellent advice.

    Getting to the fact that the Governor felt the need to remind us that we shouldn’t eat hairy food from the back of the refrigerator – well that just goes to show what sort of contempt Mr. Kasich holds us all in. After all, most of us *didn’t* vote for him.

  • Ah, C’mon,

    We all think JK is a dingus but I can’t be mad at him for advocating for fire safety. Being reminded to not eat that dodgy carton of chinese take-out that has been hiding behind the OJ was less than useful but whatever. The salient point to take I think, and one that many people ignore, is to bring heavy clothes with you even if you are just taking a “quick trip” to the store. I have personally witnessed a Mom with her kids in tow trying to dig a car out in little more than pajamas and uggs. (And I know it was their Mother because I stopped to help)

    Thx for your advice BUT I already have a mom –she is a lot better looking also– and very very truthful.
    and yes I am sure the price of candles will go up after all hes endorsed them -scented ot unscented?
    I bet the John Candle Company will be the first business on his JobsOhio list.
