    I was in grammar school in central NJ then. I remember jumping off the back porch because the snow was right up to the door.

    Of course it seemed even bigger back then because we were so much shorter!

    "It was 10 feet high!" hahahahaha.

    My dad walked to my mom's house across town in Nashua, NH during the blizzard. There was certainly a gleam in his eye, though it was not me (yet).

    If nothing else, this thread is certainly showing how old we all are.

    Do we all get to bring up wicker rocking chairs and sit around on the deck in the evening (in the summer) and tell stories about how the weather was when we were young, and how the kids today, don't know how good they have it?

    If nothing else it can show how perspective can change over your lifetime, you said earlier in this thread that you remembered the 70's as a pretty good decade for snow. My recollection was that the late 50's and early 60's were the years that all the snow fell. I have a feeling that we are about 15 years apart in age...

    Well, if you lived on a mountain and your school was on the neighboring peak, I guess you would be walking uphill both ways

    The winters of 94 and 96 were really bad, icy and snowy, they felt like they'd never end.
