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.

Note the old Kelly’s Landing in the background.
