[quote:Anonymous Coward 32648015:MV8yMTIwMTkyXzM1ODE4MjYwXzFDOUU3Q0Yz] [quote:Luisport:MV8yMTIwMTkyXzM1NzYzMzA0X0Q4MUM5QzlG] The "Cleveland Superbomb" blasted portions of the Midwest with severe blizzard conditions, particularly in Michigan, Indiana and Ohio. The term "Superbomb" refers to the extremely low pressure (958 mb) this storm had as it passed near Cleveland, Ohio. A pressure this low is more typically seen in a hurricane. Blog: Mike Bettes remembers the storm Highways were clogged with stranded motorists and doctors and emergency personnel were forced to use skis and snowmobiles. The Indiana governor sent tanks onto I-65 to remove stranded trucks. In Ohio, the National Guard was called in to assist with the worst travel disruption ever seen in the state. "Superbomb" Facts: • Snow totals of 1 to 3 feet were common throughout the region. • Wind gusts approached an amazing 100 mph in Ohio, which caused drifts to pile as high as 25 feet. • The enormous drifts buried cars and even houses while making railways and roadways impassable. • In Ohio, I-75 was shutdown for 3 days and a portion of I-475 near Toledo was closed for 6 days. The entire Ohio turnpike was closed for the first time in history. National Guard helicopters flew 2,700 missions across the state to rescue stranded motorists. • Widespread wind damage was reported across Ohio. Thousands of trees and miles of utility lines were blown down. • Around 100,000 vehicles were abandoned in Michigan alone, mostly in the southeast part of the state. • In Indianapolis, Ind., visibilities remained below 1/4 mile for 25 hours! • The combination of strong winds and a bitter cold air mass sent wind chills to near -50 degrees. Continued cold and strong winds after the snowfall ended hampered recovery operations. • Around 70 deaths are related to the blizzard. http://www.weather.com/outlook/weather-news/news/articles/notable-january-storms_2011-01-03?page=4 [/quote] That sounds like our typical winter day in Northern Michigan… Seriously, I start every morning by checking the Radar and see if school was cancelled. This morning, I saw colors I have never seen before. But, we have school so I've moved on ... [/quote]
