Upstate New York is no stranger to snowy winters.  Along the eastern shore of Lake Ontario from Buffalo to Oswego, down the Mohawk Valley, and up into the Tug Hill Plateau, heavy snow accumulation is the norm.  The winter of 1966 was no exception, bringing record-setting snowfall to north-central New York. 

 

At the end of January, a nor’easter had come up the coast covering cities along the Eastern Seaboard in snow.  But instead of moving east out over the Atlantic, the storm wrapped around and pushed back into New York from the west, crossing over Lake Ontario and bringing with it heavy lake-effect snow.

 

The storm hovered above for four days.  Large, wet flakes dropped straight down, piling up where they landed in so-called “snowburst” conditions.  Between January 27 and 31, over 102 inches fell on the City of Oswego.  The City of Syracuse recorded over 42 inches on the worst day of the storm.  When the wind picked up, it caused snow squalls and blizzard conditions.  Cars were buried and roads disappeared under piles of snow.  Schools were closed for a week. 

 

People hit by the Blizzard of 1966 called it the “storm of the century.”  And those who remember it may still argue that it was.

 

Each of the 2015 Snowflake stamps pictures a different type of snowflake in a different color.  They were designed by Antonio Alcalá and Leslie Badani.
