The Great Blizzard of 1888 begins on the Eastern seaboard on March 11th and ends on March 14th.

When it was over there would be 40inches of snow on the ground with drifts measuring 30-40 feet high in some places. 

Winds were 80 mph which gave the disaster the name “Great White Hurricane”.

Over 400 people perished in one of the largest, most deadly snow storms to hit the United States.

Winter is not over yet, but summer is getting closer.   We hope!!!
