Beginning as early as Friday night, Winter Storm Jonas is expected to pound the East Coast.
While Boston may be spared the worst of the storm, the threat brings back memories of past blizzards. On Feb. 6, 1978, a major snowstorm consisting of high winds made its way to the Boston area. Boston received 27.1 inches of snow and Providence, Rhode Island received 27.6 inches. Hurricane strength winds caused many to abandon their vehicles and flee their homes.
