It was 35 years ago Saturday that the Tri-State was hunkered down.
January 26, 1978 was the day of the great blizzard.
The storm dumped several inches of snow on the Tri-State on top of the nearly foot of snow that was already on the ground.
Winds topped nearly 50 miles an hour, visibility was virtually nil and snow drifts were several feet high.
Roads were closed as were several businesses for days.
