The almost blizzard of 2010
Wed, 10 Feb 2010 05:20:55 GMT —
A low pressure system has dumped the most significant amount of snowfall in Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan in over twenty years.
Since early Tuesday morning a sustained snowfall has blanketed the area and was expected to continue unabated through Wednesday morning.
ODOT and City of Toledo plow trucks have been working around the clock to salt and clear streets. High winds were expected to create drift conditions Wednesday morning.
Corliss Robinson, a lifelong West Toledo resident said this storm reminded her of the record setting blizzard that hit Toledo 32 years ago. "I've been waiting on it to come back, the last one we had was 1978 and I really think this is going to be the one," Mrs. Robinson said.
Most schools in the area announced Monday night that there would be no school on Tuesday.
