Here is the house surrounded by snow back in 1977.
The next year, on this very date, we had a blizzard.

The blizzard of 78.

That was a lot of snow.
I am sure it was a real pain for people with jobs and stuff but for a kid, it was great.

We missed a ton of school and had hundreds of adventures in the snow.
Forts, tunnels, sledding and crazy deep snow.
I have had stories to tell for 32 years.

Happy anniversary blizzard of 78 survivors!

You couldn't make a snowman with blizzard snow but I made one the year before.

Haha - you are certainly discernable in your "snorkle" coat. You loved that thing. You are so sad when it wore out. I think it was so beat up by the time you outgrew it - we wouldn't pass it on to Brett. He caught up with you in size about age 9 or 10.
Loved that so many shared blizzard thoughts on FB today too.
