COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Did someone say let it snow?

Areas of central and southern Ohio have gotten more snow already this winter than all of last season. That's making a lot of kids and ski-resort operators happy, but not the folks who've had to drive around in it.

The National Weather Service said Monday that the approximately 2 1/2 feet of snow in Columbus so far this season is double what central Ohio got during all of last winter. The nearly 19 inches in Dayton and foot in Cincinnati also about doubled last winter's totals in those regions.

The weather service said Cleveland has logged about 28 inches this season -- about 10 inches short of the snowfall total for all of last winter.

More snow is expected in Ohio Monday. For a timeline of that snowfall in the Tri-State, go to http://www.wcpo.com/dpp/weather/weather_news/timeline-find-out-when-our-next-winter-storm-will-hit-and-how-much-snow-were-expecting .
