Snow is Coming! Batten Down The Hatches!
With the storm of the century, 'Nemo,' coming tomorrow, what other storms from years passed do you recall? I remember a storm back in 1997 on April 1st. That one was a lot of hype but lacked in the accumulation department at least here in Maine. It slammed Southern New England though with over two feet of snow. I remember staying over night at the station to make sure everything stayed on and if it didn’t, I was there to call someone or figure it out. I think in the end, Augusta got about 8 inches. It's hard to recall now, but it wasn’t the two feet they were calling for.
I remember a storm back in 1993, that one was in mid-March. It packed quite a punch. I was taking broadcasting at the time in Saint John, New Brunswick. My roommate had a Jeep and we were out on the roads causing havoc. I don’t remember the day of the week, but I’m thinking it was a weekend day.
No, I don’t remember a storm in 1978. I was actually too young to remember that storm, believe it or not. I would have been just 6 years old, I know I look 60 but I'm truly only 40 (for another week). I remember snow as a kid but not really the impact on people’s lives. I wasn’t living in Maine at the time, however I was on the northeast coast in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
Whatever you decide to do over the next 48 hours, just make it safe, warm and fun!
