Posted by   + Show Post

Does anyone here remember the blizzard of '78?

I was little but I rememebr it because I ahd to be taken by a police car to the hospital. My mother had made us tuna sandwiches but didn't take the top of the can off all the way. I completely sliced my pinkie off. no one could drive so she had to put me in a police car and have them take me. ....and my pinkie, lol.

Looking back at pictures...it wasn't even that much snow, lol.

good thing these days we have real plows...and really don't need to worry about that.

Make someone happy today, mind your own business.

Let wait till saturday evening to see if you feel the same. I hope it's not as bad as they predicting, and hope I don't loose power. To me a drop a snow is a big deal, I m not use to this type of weather....

It's funny what was considered "bad" back then. In 24 hours Ohio got about a foot. Indiana got it the worst at the most about 3 feet.

I just find it crazy that they are comparing this storm to the blizzard of 78....that couldn't happen again. The issue with that was poor planning and lesser equipment. Now 35 years later...it's not that big a deal.

Ouch!!!!

I wasnt alive in 78 but my dad showed me pictures of how bad it was here in Ohio. My mom lived in Cali and didnt have to worry about snow.
