Northeast Indiana Sideswiped by Blizzard


Yeah, just my article on the storm. It was pretty mild around here, by blizzard standards, although probably still in the top ten storms of the last 25-30 years. It seemed like we used to have one of these every couple of weeks, but the last several years most seem to have passed us by.  I preferred it that way.

Also, some not dial-up friendly photos:

While the official snowfall in northeast Indiana was 10.6 inches, measured amounts ranged higher, with an unofficial total of a foot near Churubusco. That was far from the only problem: Winds gusted up to 50 mph and were sustained above 35 mph for hours, causing high drifts that plow drivers couldn’t keep up with. To make matters worse, sleet fell between the bands of snow, making the snow heavier and harder to move.Collapse )
