The Thanksgiving storm claimed 278 lives, including 55 in Ohio. For three days the Buckeye State was virtually shut down as motorists abandoned 20,000 vehicles along the states highways. This is the story of how people coped with the storm and the 40-inch snowfall and drifts of 20 feet or more it produced. Based on 200 personal interviews and numerous newspaper accounts, it includes chapters on both cities and farms. A highlight is a chapter concerning the Ohio State-Michigan Snow Bowl, including interviews with players from both teams.
