Incredible imagery from the February 8-9, 2013 New England Blizzard
It seemed as though the New England part of the Northeast had found “Nemo.” The incredibly large storm named by The Weather Channel slammed into areas from New York to Boston and Maine. The nor’easter produced record-setting snow totals with strong winds and severe ground conditions. The bad weather began midday Friday, Feb. 8 after two storms collided and the storm produced up to six inches per hour in some locations. The shape of the storm resembled a comma, and trailing portions of it dipped into West Virginia and D.C. Wunderground.com rated the storm one of the top five worst storms of all time to ever hit the Southern New England-Maine area. For a timeline of photos of the storm, follow the link below. (Source)
