45 years ago, the Blizzard of 1978 dropped 27.1 inches of snow on Boston. In addition to the snow, there were wild winds of 86 mph. It was a doozy. Here’s an old-school photo of Farragut Road.
Not to be outdone, eight years ago, we survived Snowmageddon. A whopping 108.6 inches fell over several weekends.
