The year was 1888...
The worst death toll in the United States for a winter storm occurred in The
Great Blizzard of 1888 in the Northeast. Over March 11–14, the blizzard
dropped between 40–50 inches of snow in parts of New York, New Jersey,
Connecticut, and Massachusetts. It blocked roads and wiped out telephone,
telegraph, and rail service for days. It was responsible for over 400 deaths
(200 in New York alone) and sank 200 ships. New York and Boston created the
first underground subway system partly in response to the massive 1888 storm
and the gridlock it created.

“There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
