A paralyzing blizzard struck the Midwest. One to three feet of snow fell in
Michigan, and 20 to 40 inches was reported across Indiana. Winds reached 70
mph in Michigan, and gusted above 100 mph in Ohio. The high winds produced
snow drifts twenty feet high in Michigan and Indiana stranding thousands on
the interstate highways. Temperatures in Ohio dropped from the 40s to near
zero during the storm. (David Ludlum)
