Ever since that storm, the mere mention of snow sends everybody into a food buying frenzy. I can certainly understand this when there is a big storm. You were not allowed to drive for about a week. It didn't really matter because you couldn't get out of your driveway let alone go down the street. About thirtyfive hundred cars were stranded on Rt.128, a highway that loops around the Boston area.

|I'm not sure where this is in the area but I do remember scenes like this.|
One thing I do remember from '78 was after everything was said and done the weather was beautiful. People were skiing down the street or using snowmobiles. I was lucky because I had a supermarket about a five minute walk from my house. I never lost power and had enough food though I did do a lot of shoveling.
I know I mention Martha's Vineyard a lot. My last time down there I took picture of the sunset on the opposite side of the island. I put them on a disc and misplaced said disc. I found it a couple of days ago. I don't know if I have enough to make a decent slideshow but here are a couple of them.
I'm outta here.
