Buzzer...you made me laugh talking about how if it's 60...or god forbid, 50...in the South we do not venture outside. People "up north" do not understand that 60 in the South is way, wayyyyy colder than 60 up there. True!

Glad our Northeastern board members are ok and the storm sort of petered out from Armageddon forecasts.

In 1969, my father hasn't met my mother yet...and in 1978, he just proposed to her.

Today, living in the South, if it drops below 65 degrees, or rains, I'm in for the day. Snow was fun years (many) ago, but I've had my fill.

Which super market was this? I don't remember that part.
In January 1969 I was in the last semester at Babson in Wellesley. I had an apartment with other students at the outskirts of Framingham in Worcester Rd. about 20 minutes from Babson. I do not recall the name of the super market and the incident got little coverage as the snow storm was severe and the media concentrated on other major incidents. I was aware about the collapse of the roof because the super market was a block away.
I left that "neck of the woods" in June and returned to Mexico. A lot great memories from that stage.
Where were you? Maybe we met sometime. LOL

dangerbob: I don't recall snow plows at that time, I do recall muscle sores from shoveling snow all day. And there was no tequila or Corona beers to mitigate the soreness afterwards. But there was plenty of "gringas"

Be safe all my fellow posters...or in my case, poser...but seriously, stay warm and safe and indoors and well stocked...it's probably not going to be that bad here in the NYC area..."just" 8 inches...but for others, it could be very bad.

Good Call. Must be almost 8 inches now with the whole day to go.

Well at least I picked up a nice steak yesterday for dinner tonight and plan a V marathon today. Remember that show.
