Ohio residents remember the incredible storm that blew through the state the Friday after Thanksgiving in 1950. The storm began late Thanksgiving evening and grew over night while families slept warm in their beds with full bellies from the hearty meals consumed that evening. Temperatures dropped near zero and combined with 40 mile per hour winds to create some of the snowiest, iciest road conditions imaginable. Plows could not keep up with the 25 inches of snow that fell on the residential towns. Even though all public transportation had been cancelled, one man remembers trudging through the dangerous conditions to get to work at a time when every penny earned during every hour of employment mattered.
