So far as I have been examining my birth year in my year-long series A Madman Turns 40, I have been reflecting on things that influenced me or piqued my interest doing research, or covered benchmarks in history that occurred in 1977. Well today, I have to focus on 2017.
|Over 5 days of continuous cold winds off of|
Lake Ontario has completely covered at least 1 New York home in ice.
See the Northeast is about to get slammed with a massive Nor'easter. The late winter storm has already plunged most of the East into bitter cold temps. Now, a front is heading right up the Atlantic coast posed to dump at least 2 feet of snow. It's expected that another weather system is just a couple of days behind this storm and will add even more frozen precipitation to areas of New Jersey, Pennsylvania, New York, and the Boston area.
|The blizzard of '17 looks to be something not to mess with.|
If this at all sounds familiar, well it does. In January and February of '77, the exact same area was crippled by a massive cold front that dumped feet of snow continually over a 2 week period. This storm isn't supposed to be that bad but it's proof of the old adage 'The more things change, the more they stay the same.'
