2013 Blizzard Nemo in New England

Photos from the Historic Snowstorm


Forecasters called this one just about right! Blizzard Nemo, as it was nicknamed by the Weather Channel, swept across New England on February 8 and 9, 2013, leaving behind a thick coat of snow and wreaking havoc on power lines and roads. In Portland, Maine, the 31.9 inches of snow recorded eclipsed a record set in 1979. In Concord, New Hampshire, and Hartford, Connecticut, Nemo was the second most prolific snowstorm of all time.

Here in our Hartford suburb, we didn't lose power (phew!), but we awoke to staggering snowdrifts that barricaded doors and made shoveling an extreme workout. Enjoy these pictures of Blizzard Nemo's assault on New England, and if you have a storm photo to share, he's how to submit your picture.
