I haven’t seen snow like this since 1978. NE Ohio
I welcome a good snow storm.

This one however was pretty brutal along the shores of Lake Erie. 40+ mph sustained winds off the lake with 5 foot high drifts.

As a side gig I plow snow and have a pretty substantial truck with blizzard rated tires. Half way through my route I called it quits. State, city, and county plows couldn’t keep up. I had to stop on main roads and study the drifts to see if I could make it through them. They were as high as the hood of my truck. This means that no matter how high I raise the plow I’m going to get a breaking wave of snow over my cab and windshield.

A 20 minute drive took me 4 hours. Not a soul on the roads. Except me. Driving through these drifts was like mud bogging. I had to stand on the gas. My truck was floating on snow in zero visibility. Had no idea where the road was. I could see the tops of mailboxes through the hurricane-like winds.

When I was a kid we got hit so hard my old man had to roll out of the kitchen window and tunnel his way to the door so we could open it. This storm wasn’t that bad but it definitely kicked ass.

The reason I shared this weather report is due to the fact that weather is manipulated.

In my neck of the woods there’s no way you are going anywhere unless you have a truck with 4wd. Even then most trucks won’t cope. Snow levels are too high.

I wouldn't live through this shit every day of the winter. I'd move. So you can feel better right now it's 5 degrees with a wind chill of 15 below in my part of Ohio. Tomorrow's forecast is an actual low of 15 below.

This storm was the real deal for a change. It'd probably been ok but the 40 mph winds really ramped things up

Its been a little chilly down here in Fla. You confirmed with that date what Ive thought too. I was very young when we moved from Oh down here from Vandailia Oh in 1979. I remembered the yr before was very cold and lots of snow. Our winters down here were a bit cold during that time. It even snowed in St Pete 1983 but they've erased the event from history.
