133 Years Ago, Connecticut Was Hit With The Worst Blizzard In History

When you think of mid-March, you may think of the last few moments of winter before the seasons change to the warmer days of spring. It seems like it might be the case on March 10, 1888. By March 11, it was clear Mother Nature had different plans as Connecticut was hit with a blizzard that would become known as “The White Hurricane”.

In 1949, Albert Hunt recorded his eyewitness account of his experience during the Blizzard of 1888. According to historical records, it has been stated there was also a baby boom nine months later.

The Connecticut State Library also has more photos of “The White Hurricane” you can check out here.  What was the worst Connecticut blizzard of your lifetime? Tell us about it in the comments.
