Question 1. What was your most memorable weather event?

My most memorable weather events have been the big blizzards that have pounded the east coast of the US during my time as a forecaster. I was working in Boston, Massachusetts as a radio forecaster when the Blizzard of ’78 slammed New England with extreme snow and wind. It was a winter hurricane of epic proportion that paralyzed almost all of New England.
