You just have to love a town that sends these notices to townspeople:
Gunny Hill Status Thursday, December 16th, 2010
In response to the current temperature and predicted snow, Gunny Hill was barricaded this morning to allow for safe sledding. A fire barrel with ample firewood has been placed midway on the hill for your use. Even though this roadway is closed to through traffic, residents that live on Gunny Hill will still be slowly driving in this area to get to their homes. When the snow begins to melt, the roadway will be reopened and plowed. Please be very careful and enjoy one of Glendale’s oldest traditions.
The Village of Glendale
I’m not sure where the name Gunny Hill came from — it is NOT the name of the street that is barricaded — but this hill runs right down the middle of Glendale, Ohio. Sledding on Gunny Hill was a highlight of the season…not every winter did we get enough snow to slide down this hill.
Good to know that Glendale is ready for the weather! Kids, get the wax out and prepare the runners for a great ride. And take advantage of the fire built halfway up the hill to warm up before your next downhill adventure.
