It’s hard to believe it’s been four years (or longer — depending on when you’re reading this) since the Blizzard of January 2016 (aka “Jonas” aka “Snowpocalypse”) came to visit us here in Easton, but today marks just that. For anyone who wasn’t living here in Easton or anywhere in the northeast during this historic storm, I’ll include this little excerpt from Wikipedia:
“The January 2016 United States blizzard was a crippling and historic northeaster blizzard that produced up to 3 ft (91 cm) of snow in parts of the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast United States from January 22 to January 24, 2016. Evolving from a shortwave trough that formed in the Pacific Northwest on January 19, the system consolidated into a defined low-pressure area on January 21 over Texas. Regarding it as a “potentially historic blizzard”, meteorologists indicated the storm could produce more than 2 ft (61 cm) of snow across a wide swath of the Mid-Atlantic region and could “paralyze the eastern third of the nation”. Winter weather expert Paul Kocin described the blizzard as “kind of a top-10 snowstorm”.“from January 2016 United States blizzard, Wikipedia
