Blizzard – You Want To See A Blizzard? -- I’ll Show You The Blizzard Of ‘88 !

-
The news is all-aflutter about this weeks blizzard sweeping up the east coast from DC to Maine.

Some news junkies, and NYC Mayor DeBlasio, are even describing this storm as the biggest blizzard in recorded history.

For those of us who have been around for a while, we reflect on The Great Blizzard of 1888 – now kids – that was a Blizzard!

Credit: Library of Congress:  More than 400 people in the Northeast died during the Great Blizzard of ‘88, the worst death toll in United States history for a winter storm.
And that's when we only had 50 million people not the 330 million we have now.
On March 11 and March 12 in 1888, this devastating nor'easter dumped 40 to 50 inches (100 to 127 cm) of snow in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey and New York.
Huge snowdrifts in excess of 50 feet (15 m).  Railroads were shut down and people were confined to their houses for up to a week.[1]    Some houses and trains were buried, and 200 ships sank in waves whipped up by fierce winds.

Can you just imagine the coverage if CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS and Fox were on the scene with 24-7 TV and Social Media coverage in March of 1888?
-
Why can’t our so-called news and weather people present current weather events in the perspective of REAL history?
The reason is that a record Blizzard in 1888 cannot possibly be explained by the Obama-Gore-Mann man-made global warming and climate change story and therefore really didn’t happen.
That’s also the case for droughts, floods, hurricanes, tornadoes and other significant record setting weather events prior to 1950.
