Now that almost everyone has been plowed out, shoveled, and used the snow blower, it is time to heave a sigh of relief. This was a huge storm, but not compared to the Blizzard of 1888. You think your snowbanks are high? Take a look at some of the images from our collection of what downtown Hartford looked like.
There are additional photographs to be seen at Connecticut History Online.
Just think, in another one hundred years you will be seeing “old” photographs of the blizzard of 2013!
