Blizzard of 1978

Neatorama has a cool bit on the blizzard of 1978.

I was 8 and, while I don’t remember much about my childhood I remember that storm. I remember a scary night followed by an amazing morning. I remember opening the front door and seeing snow above the door frame. I remember jumping out my bedroom window which was on the second story of our house in Acton, MA. I remember digging elaborate caves and tunnels with friends in the snow banks when they finally plowed the streets. It was really fun.

Stark contrast to Katrina… I’m not sure if that’s a northern thing, a then now thing or an apple and oranges thing…
