I'm in cleveland ohio and its looking like in the next 24 hrs we will be covered in snow. They are calling for anywhere from 12 to 17 inches...  Anyone else in this area? It should be alright, but wow. No snow until last week, then this. There is a blizzard warning out until Thursday morning.

Cleveland isn't in the Northeast.

Last I heard we (Boston) are expecting a typical slopstorm (what they call "a wintery mix") tonight, changing to heavy rain and high winds tomorrow.

Looks like the Detroit area is going to catch the upper edge of that storm.  We are predicted to get 4" - 6" tonite.   Since we got like a total accumulation of around 10" the entire season last year this is probably the biggest storm weve seen in the past two winters.  Im fine with that, you can keep the 12-17 stuff.

Actually I agree with you, BUT;). This area IS considered the northeast, look it up. It doesn't make much sense, but that's what it is;).

Anywho, we've got about 4-5 inches over 3 or 4 hrs so far. Time will tell!

That's how I've always understood it, and when I google "northeastern US," most maps agree with me. However, there are a few maps that include the Midwest, so I reckon one can define it differently. If you just divide the US into equal quarters, then most of the midwest is indeed in the northeastern quadrant.

I had never heard Ohio referred to as northeast before. Welcome to our region! Did you get a jacket?

C'mon guys. We can all get along here. Harpua3 has to admit that Cleveland isn't in the Northeast U.S. and everyone else has to admit that Cleveland is in the northeast part of Ohio. Deal? icon_razz

I suppose the Census Bureau has the final word, but other sources I checked are inconsistent about those two states. As someone who lives here, I've always understood the Northeast to mean New England plus NY, PA, and NJ. We will probably admit DE, but I'm going to need to review MD's application more carefully.

I've always included DC in the northeast, so that'll necessarily include MD.

VA is where it ends, though.

Omg. I've heard both and was told your way in school, which is fucked up, bc we are not Midwest. Zero near west of any kind. Then the world got sane and realized ohio is northeast. Bc we are in the north east part of the country! Lol. Fuck the census bureau if they can't even comprehend that. I believe there is a old reason for this, but we aren't west at all now!!!

Being native to California, the Midwest has never seemed at all West. Having lived in Boston for 8 years, Cleveland also doesn't seem at all Northeast.

The term is from the 1880s back when there was only 38 states, post Colorado, pre-Dakotas.

Yeah, "Midwest" is a relic. Middle or Central would make more sense, but the old word is ingrained.

I'm going to the capital to make this right!!! Anywho, our "blizzard" ended up being just a normal 6 to 10 inches of cleveland winter. Don't get me wrong that's a good thing. You wouldn't think so if you watched the local news. They seemed sad it wasn't worse, assholes;). 90% of the broadcast was about the snow. Sheesh guys, come up with a backup plan so you don't seem like unintelligent dicks;).

I started seeing the alerts on Christmas day about the storm.  Being smack dab in the middle of the Ohio Valley I was sure to get hit by the worst of it if I didn't leave early on Wednesday.  So I got up at 4:30 am and was on the road by 5 am.  Smooth sailing the whole way back to Chicago, thankfully.

Can we all agree that Cleveland is in the north eastern part of the Midwest? But it's also more in the middle northern part of Ohio.

I get a lot of shit from my in-laws for being from Pittsburgh, which they sincerely consider to be the mid-west.

Of course, being form the New York area, they consider any place that isn't NYC to be "other".
