You know what's coming up next month? Yes, the 40th anniversary of The Blizzard

And is that what started us down the road to French Toast? Sean Barnacoat at WBZ found this clip in the station archives:

Cheese

Add some cheese to that and you can make stuffed french toast. Adding ham in the middle works well.

Is, I believe, what that is called.

...or in the US, a Monte Cristo

A more commonly encountered name around here, although it seems that there are nearly as many variations and names for it as there are countries where people like sandwiches.

aka "Monty Crisco"

My first encounter with those was when I took a job at Arthur D. Little in the late '80s, and they had them in the cafeteria.

I had also known them as a toasted ham and cheese.

You don't see that very much anymore

(and that's a good thing)

Three-piece suits and three identical hairdos on a TV set.

At least I think that's the case. Can't remember the last time I actually watched the news on TV

Not just Jack Williams

Check out the hair on Bruce Schwoegler, standing in front of his weather map with the temperatures he wrote in himself with a magic marker.

Of course, I should talk, with my Members Only windbreaker back then ...

Babie boom 10 months later - no work, no school, no power. What else was there to do?

Eggs were bad for you in the '70's

I'm guessing this was filmed before it became apparent that Route 128 was snowed in and they shut down non-essential traffic for a couple of days. I don't think those deliveries happened when the manager expected them. A couple of days after there wasn't any bread or milk and hardly any eggs. I remember getting some condensed milk because that was all there was. (Blech.)

Simpler times. We had to walk uphill both ways to the grocery store and we liked it!

But 2015 was worse in my opinion. 1978 had two big storms. There was a large one a couple of weeks before the Blizzard that people forget. I think 2015 was like 6 in a month, each one pretty epic.

Probably depends on your age...

I was 12 in '78.

Best storm ever!

Off school for a week. Jumping off my triple decker porches into the snow. Skid hopping all over the hood behind busses and bread trucks. Making mad cash shovelling.

2015? Eh, not so much...

...in that clip.

Jack Williams. Bruce Schwoegler and the many sliding maps that he wrote on himself with marker.

The Bruins sweater. B's were still kings in Boston, almost 2 years after Orr left.

Old school accent. You can find alot of people that still say "staht" ... but not so many that'll tell you a "stahm" is coming!

If you heard someone say

If you heard someone say "stahm", they're not from around here.
If they were from around here, they'd say "stom".
