The effects of Hurricane Sandy have finally reached Southeast Ohio, with winter-like temperatures lurking in Athens and surrounding areas.
Even Ryan Fogt, who predicts the weather every day at Ohio University's Scalia Laboratory, said he didn't predict this.
"I was surprised to see a little snow on the ground [Tuesday] morning. I didn't think we'd have any kind of accumulation here," said Fogt.
While most Athens residents bundled up inside, some said they rushed outside to get a peek at the unseasonable winter wonderland.
"I'm really excited because I like the snow," said Mariah Robinson, a sophomore student at OU.
