  5. I was 13 at the time and it was a week before school ended... my favorite time of the year was the end of June when school ended...I saw flooding in my area in June 1967...It was raining so hard I couldn't see my car parked across the street...
  6. On this date in 1962 6.5" of rain fell in Bensonhurst Brooklyn from a localized thunder storm...This caused a street sink hole that swallowed two cars on 62ST and Ft. Hamilton Parkway...I remember seeing the hole and it was at least 30ft across... http://www.tandfonli...72.1962.9926985

  8. I think you're right...it was used for anything but a heavy snow warning...I don't remember ever hearing a blizzard warning until the 1990's...
  9. I think the word blizzard gets thrown around to much...the qualification for a blizzard should be upgraded...It used to be 20 degrees or lower for a real blizzard...
  10. good question...probably up to the 70's...
  11. the warning used to be 'hazardous driving' if the roads were slippery...it covered all frozen precipitation...
