Yup Bill, I remember that Feb. of 1977. Walked over to my cousin's apt. Looked out the window to find his car the parking lot was full but we could't see any cars. Boston shut the streets down to any driving except for emergency personel, people were cross country sking to get from one place to another. My roommate & I went to visit a nearby friend, had to dig his apt entrance way door not to get in but to let them all out. Snow drift hit the 2nd story. Snowed, I believe 28" one weekend then the following weekend dumped another 36". City became so scary with all the fellowship, friendship, strangers helping strangers. It must've been snowing acid & that wasn't even close to a bad year. I hate snow, worked outdoors in it for 30 yrs. Almost as bad as going to the beach to get a tan. Barry
