Mother Nature not a fan of early season football

Another week 1 of high school football, another week of stormy weather. For probably the fourth time this decade week 1 saw a number of postponements on the high school football. Four games in the Morning Journal coverage area were postponed to Saturday because of Friday's weather.
Westlake at North Ridgeville will kick off the season Saturday at 3 p.m. Wellington at Norwayne, Western Reserve at Black River and Bay at Orange also had their games moved to Saturday.
Ever since the OHSAA decided to move football season up a week into August in order to expand the playoffs to 32 teams Mother Nature has played havoc with the Week 1 schedule.
Just maybe, Mother Nature thinks football season should wait until the school year actually begins.
