IO: This storm was anticlimactic

Yesterday morning, the local weather people here in Toledo were predicting 14 inches of snow, and in general acting as though the horsemen of the apocalypse were riding into town. Well, it snowed roughly 3 or 4 inches, and the whole city has shut down. I'm initially from Cleveland; there, this kind of snow is quite typical. I have a hard time understanding why Toledo over-reacts so consistently to snow of any kind. I suppose that I am finished rambling now.

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?
