OSers from New England who were around in February, 1978 don't need a reminder about this big story from the past!
In my case, I was in Manhattan when the Blizzard of '78 came blasting through and while we had snow it was nothing like what happened in Providence and Boston.
Knowing Providence the best of the cities in that part of New England, I have added some screen images and links that portray the storm. Had I graduated just one year later I would have had my own photos to add in here. As it was, several of my friends who were native Rhode Islanders were either in Providence or nearby towns. I checked in with by phone with one of my best friends from school who was living near the western edge of Providence and heard how the place was shut down in a way he had never seen in his lifetime.
