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

From Winter Storm Nemo in 2013 to the April Fool’s Day blizzard of 1997, we’ve seen some pretty treacherous weather here in Rhode Island. And as we look toward the dawn of a new year, we can’t help but reflect on the pass. We’re nearing the 42nd anniversary of what was statistically the worst blizzard in our state history, and all we can say is that we’re glad this winter looks a little bit tamer.

Needless to say, it’s nice knowing we won’t be repeating a storm quite like that this winter. It’s much easier to appreciate snow and cold weather when it doesn’t try to ruin our lives.
