Childsplay to the Boston blizzard of 2013 as well, but was still impressive. Chased the 2013 storm. Stayed in Worcester Mass. Got like 33" of snow and 85 mph winds. Was wild.

I remember you doing that and asking if anyone wanted to come with you. You posted some pretty cool pics.

Yeah, last years early January cold was probably colder in nightly radiational cooling for some areas of the OV. This one was deeper and causing my furnace to eh..............misfire for awhile.

Looks like a nice thaw for the 2-6. Tough to say what happens afterwards as usual.

One of the reason I like an early spring and loathe a winter that refuses to completely give up....like last year.   I love snow on snow....it's so rare though.   Nothing like tracking the next event while you're in the midst of a warning level event.    It seems like the big dogs tend to wash away within a few days.   

March'08 was the unicorn exception.   Not only was it the largest snowfall in cmh history, it actually had better and longer staying power than most of our mid winter events.

Speaking of March '08....   for old time sakes.   I took this pic driving around during that storm in Westerville.    sigh

damn! I remember being up all night and you were one of the ones up late too...amazed that the Scioto valley (normally WTOD) was the jackpot) and watching the heavy snow and being amazed that for ONCE! CMH had the highest reading at over 20 inches! lol. And no other city in the United States matched us!(only Ottawa Canada tied us for the amount). Classic, classic winter weather!!!!!!  Did not harm anyone, not a terrible, fierce storm, just a blizzard warning(without a real blizzard)and everyone was prepared, nobody died, and it melted away not too long after. It was the perfect storm!  :)   If only I live long enough to experience another one!

Yup. Give me clippers all day long. The hell w/ those big storms & WTDs!!

I agree... clippers usually over perform and the big anticipated storms don't even happen!

Was just outside,  pretty close to 6" here.  Biggest one of the season.   Curious to see what Columbus airport comes in at.

We were at 6" until that last heavy band pushed through around 7am, just when I was on the road. Dumped an inch in about 45 minutes.
