Old School Dorchester: Blizzard ’78

43 years ago on February 6th, the Blizzard of 1978 dropped 27.1 inches of snow on Boston. In addition to the snow, there was  wild wind of 86 mph.  It was a doozy.  Here’s an old school photo at the corner of Gallivan Blvd. and Belton Street.

Not to be out done, five years ago, we survived Snowmageddon. A whopping 108.6 inches fell over several weekend.
