A blast from winters' past: The blizzard of 1978

EDITOR’S NOTE: The following is a reproduction of articles from the first-ever combined edition of the Bellefontaine Examiner, published during the blizzard of 1978. The blizzard forced our staff at the time to combine Friday and Saturday, Jan. 27-28, into one edition. An undeliverable Thursday, Jan. 26, issue was inserted into the special combined edition with the aim of delivering the product by Saturday evening. Weather conditions were such, however, that none of the papers were able to be delivered until the following Monday.

This is especially for our readers who were too young to remember “The Blizzard” and for those who lived through it, a chance to reminisce.
