Historical Blizzards


The nice folks at Daily Beast have compiled a historical collection of blizzard photography, covering the storms that have hit the US and paralyzed various cities in the US, from Boston to Seattle. I still think ours is one of the more impressive. Somehow they also left out the Knickerbocker Storm that set DC’s record back in 1922 with 28″ of snow, though, so I’m not sure how totally comprehensive the piece is. Still, worth a look, for the photos of DC in the Blizzards of ’78 & ’96.

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.
