Ohio has enjoyed an interesting summer of weather so far, all topped off by the current heat wave dominating most of America. A few sunburns, heat exhaustion, sweaty nights with no AC, and more freckles than we care to count (we area beaming shade of orange/red these days) are not the only effects.

There's also been plenty of storms, rain, and wind that have caused massive damage from Toledo to Youngstown, from Cleveland to Cincinnati.

According to The Akron Beacon Journal, there have been 125,000 insurance claims with losses at more than $537 million. And that was all before counting claims from the most recent batch of storms that delivered a 1,000-year rain in some parts of Northeast Ohio.

Yes, we're actually looking forward to winter, too.
