The Blizzard of 1978

I've survived my fair share of snow and ice storms, hurricanes, and Nor'Easters, but as anyone from New England knows-- it's nothing compared to the Blizzard of '78.



While I didn't personally live through the blizzard, I've heard countless stories about the massive snow drifts, the blinding winds, the zero visibility, the cars parked in the middle of the roads because they couldn't go any further. Since the Blizzard's anniversary is approaching (February), I thought I would go digging through Flickr for some photos to illustrate just how amazing it was.

This is a road local to me and the snow we had last week.

Seems rather tame now looking at those photos.
