So, crocuses pac? Happy Easter.
I bet Boston has had more than one
blizzard over the years Addie. I went looking for a link to Cleveland's "White Hurricane" in 1978 and found a CWRU "Encyclopedia of Cleveland History" link
that showed four historical blizzards in the Cleveland area. My Mom was pregnant with me when the 1950 one hit. She didn't know it at the time and spent five days shoveling out! Then, when she went to the doctor, he told her to "take it easy". Um, bit late with THAT advice!
The Cleveland 1978 storm was from a different system than the one that hit Boston. I remember the winds at the airport were recorded somewhere around 100 MPH. The barometric reading was the lowest recorded for a land reading not associated with a hurricane - 28.28 inches. We lost that record a few years later. All I know is that the pressure dropped so very low so very fast I had a raging headache when I woke up the day of the storm. Of course, Himself had to ignore everything and go to work.
Coming home he got stuck in a drift on the unplowed road but some nice couple took him in until I found a snowmobile rescue group that got him. He got his car the next day.
The National Weather Service article about the Ohio hurricane has a photo of a home that was buried by the snowfall! It was somewhat south of Toledo, in the state's NW corner. You can see that here: It Hit!
