42 Years Ago, Massachusetts Was Hit With The Worst Blizzard In History

While the Bay State is typically home to some pretty harsh winters, we can be thankful that it can always be worse! Massachusetts has experienced some incredibly horrible winter storms, but the blizzard of ’78 is amongst one of the worst. Reaching almost 30 inches of snow and injuring over 4,000 people, the blizzard of February 1978 will go down in history as possibly the worst. Once you learn about the infamous Northeastern blizzard of ’78, you won’t complain about this year’s snow ever again.
