A Massive Blizzard Blanketed Connecticut In Snow In 2013 And It Will Never Be Forgotten

What started out as a winter storm warning quickly spiraled into what ended up being possibly the worst blizzard in Connecticut history. The blizzard of 2013 disabled the state for several days. Winter in Connecticut can be bad, but 2013 had Connecticut residents questioning if they would ever see anything but the sparkling white sheen of several feet of snow! Let’s take a look back at the massive blizzard of 2013.

What are some of the worst natural disasters in Connecticut?

Overall, Connecticut is a pretty safe place to live. We’re not typically plagued by hurricanes or tornadoes, we’re not prone to flooding, and we’ve got an extremely low crime rate (one of the lowest in the country, in fact!). But did you know we had one year with no summer? After a volcano erupted in Indonesia, the weather was wacky throughout the world for all of 1815. Connecticut was no exception, with terribly frigid temperatures and no respite. We even had snow that July!

What are some good winter activities in Connecticut?

There’s plenty to do in winter in Connecticut. Even if you aren’t a huge fan of the cold, we’ve got lots of indoor attractions that are open year-round and are a great way to get inside where it’s heated. Check out this list of activities we’ve got planned for great winter outings! There’s all kinds of fun holiday events here. Christmas in Connecticut is a beautiful time. We’ve got Christmas tree farms, light shows, and more. Check out these festive Christmas towns in Connecticut. They’re all worth a visit if you’re looking to get into the holiday spirit!

What is winter like in Connecticut?

Well, needless to say, being in New England, we get a lot of snow! But many love the winter and this is an absolutely beautiful place to enjoy it. Check out this list of absolutely enchanting frozen wonderlands in the Nutmeg State. Many of our places, like Valley Falls, somehow manage to be even more gorgeous under a blanket of snow! And have you ever thought of exploring Connecticut’s beaches when they have snowy shorelines? It’s a beautiful sight! We may get frustrated at having to shovel our driveways so often, but we love it here and wouldn’t have it any other way.
