The Blizzard of ’77… what was that?

I might have been a young boy back when the blizzard of all blizzards hit, but I can tell you that for many reasons I’ll never forget it. And neither will the rest of the country. Like all other weather-related snafus, Buffalo has come to grip with this distant memory, and there are some people out there who even look back with a certain awe. This Thursday the Buffalo Weather Experience Center and the Buffalo and Erie County Public Library are teaming up to present an interesting event that looks back at the “Storm of all Storms”.

For those of you who may have only heard the stories, here’s your chance to check out what it was really like. How much snow was there? What did people do? What did it look like? How did people react? What caused it? Those are just some of the questions that will be answered on Thursday January 28 at 6pm at The Central Library. The event is free and open to the public.

To pre-register for the event, send an email here.
