We often speak of the Blizzard of 1888 as one of the worst snowstorms in New England’s history, but there were actually two blizzards in an otherwise mild winter. On this date in 1888, northwest winds were blowing a fresh foot of snow into 20 foot drifts in Charlotte, shutting down the Rutland Railroad for 4 days.
