The New York times article the day after the April 6, 1982 Blizzard. Several things to note about that storm which I and others have mentioned before:

It was almost entirely during the daylight hours yet our region from NNJ to the HV to LI saw from 10-18 inches of snow.

The snow was powdery in texture as temperatures stayed in the low to mid 20's through the storm.

The snow actually stuck around for several days. The low on April 7 was 19 in NYC and single digits in part of the HV.

The Times article mentions the Yankees postponing their opener for 2 days but it ended up being 4.

The next day the highs barely got into the the 30's.

The HV had an additional 3-5 inches of snow 4 days after this storm.

Good memories
