22 years ago today…..What were you doing?

A powerful nor’easter unloaded 2 feet of snow and more from Virginia to southeastern New England on Jan. 6-8, 1996. Up to 4 feet of snow was unleashed.

Philadelphia was at the heart of the storm, getting buried by 31 inches of snow. The Blizzard of ’96 still stands as the all-time biggest snowstorm for Philadelphia.

High winds howled across the region, causing massive drifting and blowing of snow that significantly reduced the visibility.
