I remember this storm so well because late in the evening my wife at the time announced it was "time for the hospital." My neighbors and a snow plow got me out to the street as the snowplow had just reached our street. But first, we had to take our daughter to grandma's closeby, and then, I had no gas. Made it to Holy Cross somehow and my son was born in about 3 hours after leaving the house and arrival at hospital. What a night.
@ Todd Rodman I had my daughter at Holy Cross but she did not come til November 12, 1987 and labor started 11pm November 11, 1987
This was one of the best days of my life...I went into labor with Kristen Johnson that day. She was not due till December 5, 1987. Everyone at work was shocked to see me. (CRAZY was probably what they thought)!! They dismissed us from work early. A friend Randa went with me to the metro station and Mike met us up at the New Carrollton station. Well Kristen decided she was not going to wait and was born the next day. She wanted to see the beautiful snow.
I remember that storm, and the Columbia neighborhood at the end of the clip is where I lived at the time. I also remember the back-to-back storms in 1983; President's Day alone with thunder snow and two feet of snow -- lovely, just lovely!
Thank you, Mr. Hill, for bringing back the memories, for making weather so interesting, and thank you for your service to our country on this, Veteran's Day.
I was living in IL and remember hearing about this from my cousin who was stationed at Andrews at the time. He was from AL and had never really seen snow before and was so excited (he was only 19 at the time though).
Loved the hair and fashions on Sue and the anchormen as well as the graphics.
Thanks for posting this, Doug and thank you for all you do and for your service as well.
I was in St. Louis on a business trip and got "snowed out" of Washington. Flights cancelled and couldn't get back here.
