T.D.I.H. - Mar 11

On this date in 1888, the East Coast of the United States was hit by a massive blizzard, one of the largest in US history. The Great Blizzard of 1888 produced snowdrifts higher than fifty feet. people were trapped in their homes for a week, and at least 400 people lost their lives. Earlier that year, the midwest had been hit by a terrible blizzard in which hundreds of people died, many of them children. There is no word on whether anyone tried to blame this on global warming or climate change.
