A monster storm that pounded the northeast this weekend dumped close to three feet of snow and has knocked out power to millions of homes. At least nine have died in snow-related accidents.
Dubbed Winter Storm Nemo, states like New York, Massachusetts and New Jersey were in a lockdown mode – airports and schools are closed, motorists are told to keep off the roads, and supermarket shelves are stripped bear of essentials.
Severe though the storm is, few blizzards will ever compare to the one that hit the New York area in the winter of 1977. During Jan. 28 through Feb. 1, close to six feet of snow fell each day. By the time the storm was over, some areas had an incomprehensible 30 feet of snow.
