As Winter Storm Nemo heads toward the East Coast, people in the Northeast are reminded of the Blizzard of 1978, when a huge snowfall ground the region to a halt. In February 1978, a massive storm left much of the area encased in snow. Massachusetts and Rhode Island were hit worst, with more than two feet of snow blanketing some parts. Thousands were injured and the blizzard caused hundreds of millions of dollars in damage. Conditions were so severe that President Jimmy Carter declared parts of the two states federal disaster areas. Here are some dramatic photos from the nor'easter that was one for the history books.
