CINCINNATI - If you lived in the Tri-State 35 years ago, you no doubt remember where you were during "The Blizzard."
Saturday marks the 35th anniversary of the blizzard of 1978. The storm itself dumped seven inches of snow on the Greater Cincinnati by the end of Jan. 26.
The storm is also remembered for 60 mile per hour winds and snow drifts that were upwards of 12 feet high.
Some roads had to be plowed multiple times because of drifting snow that made the buildup on either side look more like tunnels. In some areas, people weren't able to dig themselves out of their homes for more than a week.
Members of the Ohio National Guard were called to duty to work clearing roads, assisting utility crews, rescuing stranded persons, and transporting doctors and nurses to area hospitals.
The death toll of 51 made this one of the deadliest winter storms in Ohio history.
