    surprised no one has mentioned the blizzard of 74. I was 18, my freshman year in college. It hit the Sunday of Thanksgiving weekend. I was driving from Columbus to Ann Arbor-took 8 hours to drive from Columbus to Toledo. Then they closed all of the roads down. We slept in the car until a pickup truck came and rescued us at 3 in the morning.

    They took us to a local high school where the Red Cross had set up a shelter. We had coffee and chili and were finally able to call my parents and tell them where we were.

    When we got back to the car the next day someone had vandalized the car. We finally got back to Ann Arbor on Tuesday.

    Inconceivable! You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
