I lived through this massive snow storm as a kid in Ohio. Some others here on the board that also lived in the northern OH area no doubt must remember it.
I remember my dad driving after the storm, and it was like driving thorugh tunnels the snow was so deep, and the plows just kept on piling it to the sides. I remember it was over waiste deep in places, and the drifts were a lot more deeper of course. Me and my brother were making snow forts with tunnels. It was fun. Nowadays, I don' t miss that anymore, except around Christmas time, but it was a blast when you are a kid which I was only around 12 or 13 then. We had no power for over a week in the sub temps. That wasn't fun, but we still had a gas fireplace so we had a little heat.
Wow, I remember those days, Dar! We were already living in the south by then, but I remember the miserable blizzard in the Chicago area around 1968. My mom and I had the Hong Kong flu that year and my dad was in Cuba. We lived out in the boonies north of Chicago....the plows got to us after everyone else. The dog still had to go potty, and it was so cold, we had to thaw the ice on his paws in pots of warm water. Primitive. During one of those thunderstorms, my mom also managed to spin out in our Austin Healy Sprite and bury the thing in a snowbank up to the windshield. Guess that was fun getting it out!
And on the eighth day, God said, "Okay, Murphy, YOU take over!"
