Northwest Ohio was under a blizzard warning for a while during the Feb 13-14, 2007 storm. The forecast called for 8 to 16 inches of snow. That storm lasted 24 to 30 hours, and it dumped 9 to 10 inches of snow on the area. But the storm also contained strong winds that caused blowing and drifting snow.
The storm started early Tuesday morning and ended Wednesday. Lucas County remained in a Level 3 Snow Emergency until Wednesday afternoon. Toledo area highway roads, however, were mostly clear by Wednesday afternoon. But blowing snow continued into Wednesday night, and some counties to the south and east of Toledo were still under a Level 3 Snow Emergency on Wednesday night.
Cancellations were numerous on Wed, Feb 14, 2007. UT and BGSU closed that day.
The Toledo temperature on Thu, Feb 15, 2007 dipped to minus 8.

Mid-afternoon NWS statement on Tue, Feb 13, 2007:
Coastal Flood Statement.
Gale force northeast winds at 40 to 45 mph are expected to develop
late this afternoon and continue through the night over Lake Erie.
The strong winds will cause water levels on Lake Erie to rise in
the western basin even though the lake is mostly ice covered.
There is the possibility that as the water level rises... ice could
begin to break apart and be pushed on shore producing shoreline
damage. The rising water could also cause some flooding in areas
prone to the effects of high water
Mid-afternoon NWS statement on Tue, Feb 13, 2007
The National Weather Service in Cleveland has issued a Blizzard
Warning... which is in effect until 7 am EST Wednesday. The Winter

A major winter storm is ongoing across the region... and will
continue into Wednesday morning. Heavy snow... with significant
blowing and drifting snow... will continue this afternoon and
tonight. Northwest winds gusting to 40 mph will cause visibilities

afternoon and tonight causing white out conditions. By Wednesday
morning... storm total snowfall of 8 to 16 inches is possible
likely making some roads impassible. A few spots may see up to 20
