Additionally, gusty winds will be blowing the snow quite a bit, causing drifting on roads along with poor visibility. Travel is discouraged from late Saturday night through Sunday night.

FedEx driver saves Ohio woman story image
BEACHWOOD, Ohio (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - An 85-year-old woman can thank a FedEx driver for saving her life.

Beachwood, Ohio driver Sam Campagna was dropping off a package that was delivered by air late.

As fate would have it though, 85-year-old Janice Bloom, the woman he was delivering the package to, is a diabetic and started not to feel so well.

So, Campagna called 911, and stayed with her until she was rescued.

Paramedics say it was a lucky coincidence, because if he wasn't there, Bloom might not have made it.

Her son, who lives miles away says he's so thankful that Campagna was there at the right time.
