Back then I was working at Wellesley Office Park, right off of 128, in Massachusetts. I was one of the lucky ones, I was able to leave work early enough the day before to miss the worst of what is now known as the "Blizzard of '78." Some of my co-workers were not as lucky and spent hours and hours stuck in their cars.
Fortunately, up here in southern New Hampshire, we only got about half the amount of snow that they got in the 128 area, so it was rather nice to spend the rest of the week at home. One incredibly long snow day! The NH seacoast, though, was pounded pretty badly.
If you were too young to remember the Blizzard of '78, then you'll find pictures here, and more links to Blizzard information.
For you oldies, we are now far enough removed from the experience to enjoy the details of that day, so, borrow this book and take a trip down memory lane: Tougias, Michael. The Blizzard of '78 [551.555 TOU].
