So where were you 31 years ago today. You might not think you remember, but you will when I tell you that 31 years ago today it was the freak snowstorm that hit the Capital Region. No one was prepared for snow on October 4th and that's what the area got, and lots of it. Downed power lines, people without power for four or five days, people stuck on the highways, the airport closed and more. Check out the classic Channel 10 newscast from that day 31 years ago. And tell me where you were you when it hit. I happened to be visiting friends in Jacksonville, Florida, and only found out when we turned on the Weather Channel to see what the forecast was going to be for the day and saw Albany on the National Forecast. Crazy. What about you?
It was 31 years ago this morning in 1987 we had a devastating surprise snowstorm that knocked down trees and power lines. Here is a look from Hamilton Hall on Colonial Quad at UAlbany as it was snowing. pic.twitter.com/R0jN5FJv1f— NWS Albany (@NWSAlbany) October 4, 2018
