Mike...There an article from AP calling this a blizzard. I did not know if this winter storm met NWS criteria to be as such. It may have in some places and the weather service did not issue blizzard warnings. Maybe I'm just nit picking.Link: http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20110209/ap_on_re_us/us_winter_weather
I do not think it was a blizzard in most areas because it did not meet the winds of 35 mph for three hours or more criterion.
