We didn't get very much snow in Gallia County, but, it sure looks like surrounding counties, Lawrence, Meigs, Jackson and Vinton got dumped on.

And of course, SW Ohio, Columbus and Cleveland are REALLY deep in it!

Been listening to our county garage on the scanner. They've got things pretty well cleared up.

OSP in Gallia/Meigs (Post27) hasn't had too many crashes today....

It is amazing what a 100 mile distance makes, it looks like we may have got a total of 6 inches or so but it drifted so bad it is hard to determine exactly.

Here's the official text from the NWS

Record Report
Statement as of 12:44 am EST on March 09, 2008


... Record daily maximum snowfall set at Columbus for March 8...
... Record all time storm total snowfall set at Columbus...
... Record all time 24 hour maximum snowfall set at Columbus...

A record daily snowfall of 15.5 inches was set at Columbus
yesterday. This breaks the old record of 5.5 set in 1984.

The Port Columbus International Airport recorded 15.5 inches of
snowfall on March 8. This... combined with the five inches that fell
on March 7... provides a storm total snowfall of 20.5 inches. This
breaks the old record for storm total snowfall of 15.3 inches set on
February 17 and 18 1910.

The 15.5 inches that fell on March 8 also broke the record for
maximum snowfall in a 24 hour period. The previous record was 12.3
inches on April 4 1987.

I have about 2-3 feet of snow in my driveway/yard. My street still hasn't been plowed. And, my street still has a tree blocking one lane that's been there since the Ice Storm on Wednesday.

Maybe I should sell some of this snow on eBay!

Ice Storm. Believe me, I do feel for you. We experienced that in 2003 (Started Feb 15, 03)...Our 911 Center ran on generator power for four complete days. Talk about being on pins & needles!

We had residents in part of our county without power for upwards of 3 1/2 weeks!

It was NOT one of those fun times to be in public safety....Oh, yeah, the first few hours were "neat" but I understood the ramifications. Any PROLONGED event takes its toll on personel, equipment....

Part of our saving grace is the temperature DIDN'T go down after the storm. It stayed around 30 degrees. We DIDN'T get the snowfall on top of the ice.

A few pics of our 2003 mess...Out in rural areas of our county, the power company had to replace nearly EVERY power pole they had. That's why people were out so long. The poles had to be trucked in. Crews had to be trucked in.

I hope I get retired before we have another one like that !!!!

Hey, I'm just waiting til I win the lottery. Then, I'll move somewhere without single-digits temps, snow, ice storms, hail, hurricanes, or tornadoes. I'm about sick of all this Ohio weather.
