Welcome to Snow Season in Cincinnati!

This Thursday marks the first instance of significant snow fall in Cininnati this winter season, and were the effects ever felt.

It didn't see, like such a big deal at the time, and although it waited till 3PM to start, by 4PM the city's traffic system was virually paralized. In telling my own story, I was glad to have been release from work early at 4pm and ran out to the bus stop. Get home, do a little snow removal, etc. It only looked like an inch or two on the ground at the time, but the major streets were in gridlock. I caught a bus and proceeded to take a ride that would be so slow I didn't arrive home until 7:45pm. Folks, the entire ride time is usually only about 40 minutes, tops. This was 3 and a half hours. It took possibly a half hour to go a block in some spots. Later I would find out that the snowfall was more in the 4-5 inch range. It seems thatit took lots of people 3-4 hours to get home. School buses were dropping off their last students at 9:30pm.

Ah, winter gotta love it! Or not.
