The East-Coast of the United States is getting prepared for a winter-storm that many meteorologists fear could be worse than the blizzard of 1978.
"The 1978 blizzard's 35th anniversary will be Feb. 6 and Feb. 7.," according to boston.com, and people still remember it like it happened yesterday.
In Connecticut, "the Blizzard of 1978 ripped through the state 35-years-ago today killing about 100 people," according to Connecticut's ABC Affiliate, News 8.
"I got right to the bottom of the hill and the truck stopped. I got up, lifted the hood and all snow was in it," said Salvatore Corso of West Haven, according to New 8
"It was not good memories you know? Couldn't get to work or anything [sic]. You were just at a standstill. Everyone was at a standstill," said Rae Voira, according to News 8.
In Boston, the feeling is mutual with the blizzard dropping 27-inches of snow on the city.
"Forecasts show that Boston could see up to 20 inches of snow between Friday and Saturday, with some areas seeing more," reports nbcnews.com.
"Shoveling, cleaning cars, anything you need me to do," said Isaac Morales, who hopes to make money off the storm. "I already have rock salt. I already have shovels. I've got extra bodies. I've got everything so I'm all set," reports nbcnews.com.
In New York, Mayor Michael Bloomberg said his city was also getting ready, and that the timing of the storm could actually benefit municipal workers.
"If it's going to happen, having it happen Friday overnight into Saturday is probably as good timing as we could have," Bloomberg said. "The sanitation department then has the advantage of being able to clean the streets when there's normally less traffic," reports CNN.
For those New Jersey residents still affected by Hurricane Sandy this blizzard will not help in damage control, as the high winds and gusts will cause more beach erosions.
Be parepared for the worst and heed the words of CNN's meteorologist Chad Myers.
"If you are on the highway and you are stuck, you are putting yourself in danger."
