We had three inches on Tuesday afternoon into Tuesday night which was followed by freezing rain that packed the snow and caused serious ice problems. Everywhere shut down. That includes I-78 to Allentown, which literally shut down for 36 hours with a bunch of people trapped on the road. Half of the roads I drove on today were not cleared still.

I think in the eastern US it's just a matter of slow reaction time. The I-78 disaster was due to the fact that they didn't give anyone a chance to get off the road. They still haven't plowed or salted half of the roads. It's just a mess.

We got an early dismissal Tues., snow day Wed., delayed opening today. We're off now for four days for Presidents' Day. Pretty nice week, in summary.

I think that you are right. I've been in Toledo for the better part of six years, and I have found that the city's snow response is terrible compared to that of Cleveland.

I want snow..

It's as hot as the summer where I'm, I still wear short sleeves this time of the year! I can't believe it, we already got a hot Christmas, a hot New Year, and now a hot Chinese New Year?

What should I do with my coat?
