I remember the blizzard of 96 vividly. We had my stepsons over for the usual weekend visit with their Dad. On Sunday, the storm got so bad so quickly that we told their mother not to try to come get them. Once Gov. Whitman declared a state of emergency on Monday morning, we knew we weren't going anywhere for a while. The boys were thrilled to not have school. Their dad - a school teacher - was also free to enjoy the snow. I was inbetween jobs so I didn't have to be anywhere. We ventured outside Monday afternoon to check out the 28 inches of snow that fell in Perth Amboy. Our cars were buried. I tried to shoot videos but the wind almost knocked me over. On the Weather Channel, I have never seen a storm system so large - it really was a snow hurricane. We were fortunate that we had no trouble with electric power. The only crisis was the cable went out briefly one day - we got tired of watching videos so we started playing board games. One night, my stepson Corry and I dualed to the end in a very tense game of Risk which went on to 1 am - I won. My husband and Nick -my younger stepson - had gone to bed. We were snowed in until Wednesday.

Wow, I remember some of it as I recall a few photos I had taken - we were in Brooklyn and we had never seen so much snow in our lives - pretty and inspiring nature at work...until one had to shovel - my husband did it, not me:) That's great that you have the front page of the NY Times pictured here! Well, luckily today's won't be anywhere quite that much. Happy New Year!


Yeah, that was a great storm.The big snowstorm we had back in 2006 actually dropped 7 more than this blizzard but I think the 96 storm was deeper in my Village neighborhood. I missed our recent one -but there might be yet another biggie next week.
