Blizzard of 1978 - New Bedford, Ma.
Video of the Blizzard in New England.
The massive destruction of the Blizzard of 1978 began on February 5, 1978.
It was caused by the coming together of a dense mass of low pressure off of the Carolina's coast and a Canadian high-pressure system.
The storm had tracked north and turned into a massive counter clock wise flow called a nor’easter depositing the bulk of the snowfall from the morning of February 6 until the evening of February 7.
