These nine winter storms in Cleveland, however, were all the talk of the town in their day, and they have left a mark on the Clevelanders who experienced them.
Winter is a season we’ve all learned to live with, but those occasional 70-degree February days ensure that we never fully adapt to winter in Ohio. Fortunately, the landscape is beautiful during the winter, making the hectic season more tolerable and somehow worthwhile.
