Easter 1968 (April 15) was sunny and pleasant, with a high/low of 68/46. (The high on Good Friday reached 82.) And no snow fell in April 1968. You're probably confusing it with Easter 1970, when four inches of snow fell.

This has been extraordinarily helpful. I am trying to untangle family memories and one of my earliest memories is of my dad tossing me playfully into snow that was taller than my head (quite possible a snowdrift that was taller than the amount of snow dropped). I was born in 7/76, which makes 2/78 the likeliest, but that would be one hell of an early memory at 19mos old. We had moved to NC by 1982, and at that point I would have been 6yo, and too tall to be covered by snow. I was expecting to find a storm maybe near late 1979/80 because I would have been 3.5/4 by then and starting to form memories. But there don't seem to be any that would have produced enough snow to cover my head, even in drifts.

I know we sometimes lived on Long Island. Do you know of any storms in that timeframe that might have hit the Island, but missed the city? If so, I would love an email.

The only data I have for Long Island is for Islip, but it only goes back to 1984. Perhaps the photo was taken during the President's Day snowstorm of 1979, which produced about 13" in NYC.
