In Ohio, at least 250,000 homes and businesses in Ohio and 60,000 in Michigan were without power.
The Cleveland area and northeast Ohio were being slammed the hardest early Tuesday, with rain and high winds bringing down power lines and knocking out electricity to a wide swath of the area. Some major arteries in the city were closed because of flooding, and hundreds of school districts canceled classes. A section of Interstate 90 was closed because of flooding from nearby Lake Erie.
Snow was reported in some parts of eastern Ohio and south of Cleveland. Snow and icy roads also were reported south of Columbus. Several schools were closed.
Flights were canceled at the state's airports.
Such a late season storm is relatively rare but not without precedent, said Tom Niziol, a winter weather expert with The Weather Channel.
As recently as late October 2010, the storm called the "Chiclone" ravaged the western Great Lakes with some of the highest waves ever recorded on Lake Superior at 26 feet. Still, Niziol said, "it is rare to have a hurricane produce such major impacts on the entire Great Lakes region."

We only lost power for an hour last night.
There was the sun shining this am but then the clouds came back.
Here is a video of the Narragansett Towers from a friend's FB page
it's the same spot I posted of the waves crashing yesterday back at the beginning of the thread.
