The Great Blizzard of 1888 or Great Blizzard of ’88 (March 11 – March 14, 1888)
was one of the most severe recorded blizzards in the history of the United States
of America. Snowfalls of 20–60 inches fell in parts of New Jersey, New York along
with Massachusetts, and Connecticut. Sustained winds of more than 45 miles per 
hour produced snowdrifts in excess of 50 feet. Railroads were shut down and 
people were confined to their houses for up to a week.
