Like most of New England, I spent today digging out - and will probably be doing so tomorrow as well. Since blizzards have such a big impact on our life right now, I'd thought I'd share some links to histories of the previous blizzards.
1) Blizzard of 1978
a) National Weather Service: A weather related view of the storm.
b) Jim Shea's view: A favorite Connecticut columnist remembers 1978.
c) And photos...
2) Blizzard of 1888:
a) A Courant article, which sadly, is making me feel better. At least it isn't 50 inches (somewhere around 30 with higher drifts).
b) And an article from Connecticut History Online with photos.
3) Comparing and Contrasting the last three storms:
a) New Haven Register article on all three.
