Remember This, New England, Snowstorm, 1978 Boston, Snow Storms, Blizzard 1978, Winter Storm, Pure Michigan, 1978 Blizzard
A major snowstorm is expected to dump up at least 20 inches in the Boston area -- and it could end up making history.
1978 Blizzard: Nemo Snow Storm Compared - I remember BU being closed for a week - the only place open was the grill in Myles Standish Hall (the gas was working). We ate nothing but hamburgers for a week. Who remembers that storm?
I was there! February 6: The Northeast was hit with a record breaking winter storm, going down in the history books as "The Blizzard of 1978." While the storm lasted three days the majority of accumulation was on the 6th, with snow falling at 4" and hour. (Pictured here: South Boston buried under 27 inches of snow).
Blizzard of 1978 ~ The Northeastern United States blizzard of 1978 was a catastrophic and historic nor'easter that brought blizzard conditions to the New England region of the United States, New Jersey and the New York metropolitan area. The "Blizzard of '78" formed on February 5, 1978 (a Sunday) and broke up on February 7, 1978.

The Rotor was a common ride that unfortunately has all but vanished from parks. This is the barrel that pins you to the wall while the floor drops! The last spinning amusement park ride I was on before quitting them completely.
Rotor Ride at Vintage Cedar Point, Ohio. The riders are stuck to the wall of the barrel by the force of friction due to centrifugal force. This ride was one of my favorites. I loved it when the floor dropped out. Science and fun!

My favorite at Cedar Point Ohio The Rotor was a common ride that unfortunately has all but vanished from parks. This is the barrel that pins you to the wall while the floor drops! Le tambour à la foire du midi, quand les personnes restent collées contre la paroi alors que le sol descend et cela grâce à la force centrifuge.

Wrapples by Kraft Foods. Take a wrapple and an apple, add a stick, heat it quick. And that's how you make caramel apples with Wrapples from Kraft. Yes, the jingle is still in my head!

Remember when these flashbars were the improvement over the four-sided flashcubes? "Look! A flashbar! I won't have to change for TEN WHOLE FLASHES!"
The disposable flash bar in all its glory. It made me very stingy with the flash indeed!

Why do my childhood memories involve my brother ruining innocent things? He'd say "fuzzy wuzzy was a bear, you stole fuzzy's fucking hair".
Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear. Fuzzy Wuzzy had no hair. Fuzzy Wuzzy wasn't fuzzy, was he?...My Mom would sing this and countless songs and rhymes in her lovely, happy voice!
childhood chant - many years ago they used to have a little bear bath soap that when wet it got fuzz. Anyone remember this?
Fuzzy Wuzzy Was a Bear - we all said this over and over....takes me waaaay back. My sister would teach me this.. ^.^)\
Fuzzy Wuzzy. I remember this from a movie that had something to do with an Elvis fan. Hummm

Baby Jessica rescued from the well. AND my friends and I watched the made for tv movie over and over.
“Baby Jessica” fell into an 18-inch-wide well casing near Midland. Her rescue riveted the nation for 58 hours until she was rescued on Oct. 16, 1987 http://lifeisreallybeautiful.com/lifeisreallybeautifulandsuchawonder/remembering-baby-jessica/
Omg - I was obsessed w baby Jessica! I made my mom record (on vhs - of course!) the made for tv movie and I watched it over and over and over... Which actually explains my reoccurring nightmare abt falling into a well! Now if only I could figure out why Daddy Warbucks is always there...
