The storied Blizzard of 1978 is still remembered vividly in and around the Wabash area.


The storm produced 55 mph winds and over a foot of snow over much of Indiana between Jan. 25 and Jan. 27 that year, creating snow drifts of up to 10 to 20 feet and prompting then-Gov. Otis R. Bowen to declare a snow emergency.


For then-North Manchester resident Regina Ousley, the memories are vivid beyond imagination. She gave birth at home during the storm, an event which received attention in North Manchester and Wabash newspapers. She shared her incredible tale with The Paper recently.
