Freak Snowstorm Hits The Berkshires 31 Years Ago (Video)
A record breaking snowstorm hit The Berkshires 31 years ago today (Oct. 4), 1987. The forecast called for a rainy Nor' Easter, but what happened was unforgettable to anyone who lived here or eastern New York.
Up to two feet of heavy, wet snow fell in some parts causing downed trees, power lines, and major traffic delays, (standstills), at times. It was said that 333,000 people were without power at one point, according to iberkshires.com.
The storm hit on the day of the Fall Foliage Parade, to boot!
This morning, Slater and Marjo referred to the video below WNYT had released Wednesday. It shows a reporter talking to folks stuck in traffic on I-88.
