The Blizzard of April 6, 1982

The blizzard of April 6, 1982 was one of the most remarkable late season snowfalls to strike the northeast. Snowfall accumulations from near 10 inches to over a foot occurred over much of Long Island, but it was the accompanying very cold temperatures and high winds causing extensive blowing and drifting snow that were unprecedented for the month of April. These photos were taken the following day in Syosset, NY, where high temperatures only reached into the 20's and wind chill temperatures hovered near zero despite brilliant blue skies and strong April sunshine.
