In 1978, Rhode Island Plunged Into A Blizzard That Makes This Year’s Winter Look Downright Mild

Feel that chill in the air, Rhode Islanders? We’ve officially entered another New England winter, and we all know they can be pretty unpredictable. However, when you’re feeling cold and a bit blue, remember that we’ve experienced far worse. If you were around in 1978, you may remember a far more devastating storm here in Rhody… a storm that makes this winter seem extremely tame.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

Do you remember your coldest and most treacherous Rhode Island winter?
