The Blizzard of January 7 - 8, 1996

The Blizzard of 1996 ranks as one of the greatest snowstorms to affect a very wide area of the eastern seaboard, including all of the northeast urban corridor. On Long Island it was the worst snowstorm since the Blizzard of 1978 in terms of snow, wind and disruption of travel.
