    • Snowstorm May 2-3, 2013

    • A winter storm produced a record-setting snowfall — an official 4.8 inches of snow — for May 2 and 3 and wreaked havoc across the Livingston County area. Power was severed to the entire Chillicothe Municipal Utilities system due to storm-related problems encountered by the city's power provider. Power was out for much of the morning in the entire city as well as surrounding communities. Farmers Electric Cooperative, which serves customers in nine counties, reported 24 broken utility poles within its system and 1,100 customers without power. Only one other time has there been measurable snowfall in this area during May, according to records with the National Weather Service. The NWS reported that the only measurable snow on record to have ever fallen in May came in 1907. According to the May 3, 1907, edition of The Chillicothe Constitution, an excess of 3 inches fell in Chillicothe during that storm which spanned May 2 and May 3, 1907.
