I’ve been to enough Ducks and Angels games to know there are a considerable number of former Northeasterners here in OC and SoCal in general.Ã‚Â This week is the 30th anniversary of the Blizzard of ’78 which hit from Penn to Maine.Ã‚Â
In my hometown in Central New York, we had snowdrifts up to 8 feet; school was out for a week.Ã‚Â We shopped for our neighbors via snowmobile.Ã‚Â Mom made soup and cocoa to warm the whole house and we’d watch the snow fly and hear the wind howl.Ã‚Â We checked on elderly neighbors and shoveled more snow than I have ever seen.Ã‚Â
This photo is Route 128 in Boston near Needham; the Nation Guard came out to plow snow and remove snowed in cars.Ã‚Â Other photos are from New England and Upstate New York. It was the storm of the century.
