Pops, I was only 5 but remember it quite well. We had a 15' drift across the road in front of our house. We had about a dozen stranded motorists that ran into the drift and each other stay at our house for a few days. Luckily the people that owned the corner store lived above it. My dad was making trips there on the snowmobile to get food to feed everyone.Fond memories living in upstate NY! Watertown vs. Rochester/Buffalo area, but same lake effect results! I survived the Blizzard of '77! (There's a facebook group for that, lol!).
