I've been collecting blizzard stories for many years and have asked lots of folks to dig up their photos. I've have two nice finds in the last couple of months. The following collection is of Scituate.
 
Many thanks to my pal Heather Mendes.

Found this photo of Peggotty Beach in Scituate taken a day after the snow stopped Feb 9, 1978.

As you can notice, the blizzard took quite a toll. Boats were washed up, sunk and even completely destroyed. Debris from harbors and docks were reduced to rubble. Even some homes were ruined greatly, leaving people to move, rent, or stay with family members as they rebuilt their homes, if they were lucky. Some people who lost many things had to get equipment financing to replace their destroyed equipment.
