Its awful out there, couldn't stay out for too long but found numerous drifts averaging around 12". Some spots averaged 6-8" too. I'd say around 4.5" actually fell but I didn't really find a true spot to measure where wind didn't affect it. Also found a weird hole near my house that spit out water on occasion, quite weird.

My 12" ruler got swallowed laugh.gif

I must say this cold air just came in at the perfect angle for you guys! I would have thought it would it would barrel through and sweep the moisture with it in time. It is actually pivoting and look at the intensity. Eastern part of Ohio has some serious rock time to go yet!

This almost reminds me of he feb 2010 storm where at firs tmodels weíre showing crazy snow hen backed off then the low took the same path and started to pivot and we got rocked with a foot this has a chance

I'd venture to say that this is the best overall winter storm since somewhere during that 2009-2011 time frame when we had a few nice storms. The wind is just awesome, can't say it enough.

I wouldn't be surprised to see Delaware Co. & a few other of the more populated counties go level 3 emergency for the rest of the night due to the wind. It is awful out there.


I agree. I periodically check the news websites to see.

I wouldnít be surprised if this takes an hour to clear out. I just canít sleep when this is happening. I agree with whoever said this is one of the best storms in years. 2015 was great in that we had cold and high season snow totals, but I really donít recall any slobber knockers. This is the first slobber knocker I can recall since 2008. I missed 2010 out here.

The changeover to snow has occurred, very large flakes but not very many of them.

The dry slot appears to be filling in a bit more so I could still end up with a decent layer of snow on top of a solid 1/2" of sleet. Everything is coated and there's quite a chill in the air.

Great hearing about all of the snow in Ohio! Sounds like fluffy accumulations

I measured about 4.5-6.5" of snow. But just a bit over 5 inches seemed to be the most consistent. I had a 12 inch drift, it caught me by surprise lol. I actually got my strongest gust this last time I was out. Snow is still falling here, though the winds are probably picking up snow too.

Several inches of snow fell in our neighborhood after the snow storm exited courtesy of Lake Huron and Lake Erie. Nearly stationary band set up overhead producing very intense snowfall rates and fluffy. Wanted to post a pic, but can't remember how to do that, lol. Regardless moving over to the clipper for monday.

Fell asleep at 1130 and sounds like I missed a grand finale! By looking at radar, I could tell it was going to be a decent ending to the storm. Havenít stepped outside, but definitely looks like between 5-6Ē.

Was out in the storm from about 10:45 til just now (8 AM) running a plow. The snow we had on the SE side of Columbus/Pickerington area was very light and fluffy and the wind was howling, especially from midnight-330 or 4 AM. I never measured (was too busy) but we were guessing around 6" but not sure since it was so windy. It was a tough snow to plow, too-the wind would blow snow over were you already were, and the snow was light enough it would come up over the plow and freeze on the windshield. I can't count how many times I had to get out and de-ice my wiper blades. Going to clear my driveway now that I'm back home and take a nap! Looking forward to the clipper (somewhat-not sure my old body can handle 2 all nighters in just a few days lol!)
