On Thursday, we published photographs to compare the amount of snow that fell during Winter Storm Stella with what fell during the Blizzard of 1888. Today, we recall another great snowstorm in Hudson history--one that took place in December 1969. Bob Tomaso, who grew up on Eighth Street, sent Gossips these pictures of the aftermath of that storm.
Tomaso recalled it was days before the streets were passable after that storm in 1969. He also told Gossips that there were many big snowstorms in Hudson in the '60s and '70s, and things were much worse on city streets in those days than they were in the aftermath of Stella.

Notice that people used to dig out their own neighborhood hydrants. You don't see that as much anymore, a trend with clear Darwinian implications!ReplyDelete
