It’s Impossible To Forget The Year Rhode Island Saw Its Single Largest Snowfall Ever

When you think of the horrific snowstorms Rhode Island has experienced, the blizzard of 2005 and Winter Storm Nemo of 2013 might pop into mind first. But in the Ocean State to find the largest snowfall you have to flip the calendar back a little further. No, we’re not talking about the Great Blizzard of 1888. That storm dumped a mere 20 inches on Little Rhody. The deepest snowfall occurred in 1978.
