Blizzard of 1978

Today’s attention may be focused on the blizzard over the east coast, but residents of Cincinnati, Dayton and Columbus remember January 28 for another reason — the blizzard of 1978!

37 years ago today, this once-in-a-lifetime storm paralyzed the region with wind gusts of over 60 MPH, temperatures in the single digits, near-zero visibility, and snow accumulations of a foot or more. Businesses and major highways were closed for days, and the National Guard was brought in to help with the lengthy cleanup.
