East Providence, Rhode Island

I remember the blizzard well. Was 13 and living on Snake Hill Road in Glocester. Our school, Ponagansett, was out on vacation that week so we were home watching the snow build up. Interestingly, our lights never went out and the main roads were plowed. However the National Guard did come and dig us out of our house due to the fact that my mom was a kidney dialysis patient. She went by truck to Johnston, then by snowmobile to Rhode Island Hospital. Didn't see her for about a week.
