PHOTOS: Remember the Blizzard of 1978? Butler County was buried

Forty years ago, the area was covered by one of the worst blizzards on record in Ohio.

The famous Blizzard of 1978 set a single-day snowfall record for the region that still stands. On Jan. 26, 1978, more than foot of snow fell in the region.

The month-long winter weather event resulted in more than three feet of snow with 25-foot snow drifts.

Each year, memories of the blizzard and the views from that time cause strong nostalgia for the area. Click on the card above to view our photo gallery, and watch the video above for more scenes.
