Great Blizzard of 1888

The Great Blizzard of 1888 was one of the most powerful blizzards in the history of the United States. There were snowfalls of over 50 inches (127cm) in Massachusetts and Connecticut and over 40 inches (101cm) in New York and New Jersey. The winds were so strong that the snow blew into drifts that covered entire houses - the highest measured drift was 52 feet (17 meters) tall!
