Snow dump in East will have hard time matching the big daddy of '782/8/2013
The blizzard known as "Nemo" is beginning to bury the Northeast, so you know what that means: It's time for old-timers to reminisce about the worst storms they've been through. Comparisons are already being made to the massive snow that hit New England 35 years ago (almost to the day) and left major cities in the region under more than 2 feet of white (see the gallery above for stunning pics). Coupled with 70 mph wind gusts, the 1978 blizzard was a deadly force, with 99 storm-related deaths reported. At least one forecaster doesn't expect this year's storm to be as damaging, if only because an unbelieving public back then failed to heed warnings, leading to more being stranded on highways and in inaccessible areas.
