Blizzard of 1978, a look back at the historic storm
As the northeast braces for a record-breaking winter storm, many are taking note that the storm would hit just after the 35th anniversary of the historic blizzard of 1978, which paralyzed the region with more than 2 feet of snow and hurricane force winds.
The first vehicle rolls out of a giant cargo plane as U.S. Army troops from Ft. Hood, Texas, arrived at Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks, Ct., Feb. 8, 1978. The Army detachment has been sent to assist in snow removal operations following the blizzard which hit Connecticut.
