It’s Impossible To Forget The Year Cleveland Saw Its Single Largest Snowfall Ever

Cleveland is a lovely city, but there is no denying that it has seen some intense winters. Ohioans are enchanted by the beauty of our landscape, but it can be hard to endure events like the blizzard of 1978, which has been cited as one of the worst blizzards in U.S. history. However, decades before this memorable event, nearly 20 inches of snow dropped on The Land in just a single day. If photos had not preserved imagery of this historic day in Cleveland history, you might not believe our landscape.
