Winter of 1987

Twenty years ago this weekend, the Philadelphia area was hit with up to two feet of snow. This anniversary comes as we greet another winter storm in the Winter of 2007.

This Winter (2007) has been a thumb in the eye of those who insist that the sky is falling and the Earth is warming, as airports have closed, highways have shut down, cold temperature records have been broken, buildings have collapsed, rivers have frozen and general misery has lingered for weeks.

Of course, neither the Winter of 1987 nor the Winter of 2007 should be confused with the Winters of 1994 or 1996.
