Nor'easter in Greenwich, NY- February 13, 2014


*I'm thinking Irene's storm in Ludlowville in 1936 was nowhere near what we are getting in Greenwich right now in 2014. Holy nor'easter Batman! The snow & wind are crazy right now.

  1. We have had some brutal storms this year too. Keep warm and safe. I was talking to an elderly Aunty of mine who was recalling a year when she was a child and lived in a mountain town. She said animals froze to death stranded in deep snow. {she is 81} Certainly this could still happen, but would be less noticed as we all tend to live less isolated.

    1. Definitely. Plus, as much as we like to complain about meteorologists, I would rather have them than not. The storms & cold in January 1936 were pretty bad, but February seems to have been a bit better.

Thanks for visiting this flashback to 1936. I'm sure Irene would be pleased! We'd love to hear from you.
