Record winter continues into March

The "cold spell" has not gone away, despite the recent flurry of damage control articles by those in science and media who see their fart cloud of CO2 dissipating rapidly.

The Associated Press: Midwest Cleans Up After Record Snowfall:

More than 20 inches of snow fell from Friday through Saturday at Columbus, eclipsing the city's previous record of 15.3 inches set in February 1910, the National Weather Service said. Elsewhere on Saturday, 14 inches fell at Milan, Ind.; and up to a foot fell at Louisville, Ky., Buffalo, N.Y., Cleveland, Cincinnati, and parts of Tennessee. Arkansas collected a foot of snow Friday.

Many churches in the Columbus area canceled Sunday services because roads were still slippery.

Parts of Ohio, Tenn. Get a Foot of Snow:
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A foot of snow buried parts of the Ohio and Tennessee valleys early Saturday, creating whiteout conditions and keeping many would-be weekend travelers at home.

Winter storm warnings were in effect from eastern Kentucky to upstate New York and northern Maine, the National Weather Service said. Wind up to 35 mph whipped the snow and cut visibility to less than a quarter mile in places, the weather service said.
