Ken K. in NJ

Hi Rob. I actually remember that trace of snow on 5/9/77. I was looking out the window of my office on 17th street and for a few minutes it came down fairly heavily, mixed with some rain almost the whole time. My recollection is that it was in the late morning, maybe around 11 AM or so. I knew I was witnessing something historic, I believe there had been only one other May snowfall until that point, and I don't think it has occurred since.


Ken, on that day I drove from Pittsburgh to University Park for an awards dinner and I remember seeing small amounts of snow on the ground in Central PA (but not in Pittsburgh). But eleven years earlier there was a significant snowfall in Pittsburgh as three inches fell that evening. I was in the third grade and remember walking to school the next morning (the low was 27 degrees) on freshly plowed streets.
