The National Weather Service forecast published in the Dayton Daily News
Wednesday, Jan. 25, 1978, predicted, "Temperatures steady tonight, turning
colder toward morning. Snow flurries Thursday."
'One experience in a lifetime is enough,' says Luther Mann, shown
with his daughter Kim outside their home in 1978. The family still
lives at 16895 Pasco-Montra Road, east of Botkins in Shelby County.
They came through the blizzard OK, though they were snowed in for a
week and the house suffered minor damage.
