SPECIAL WEATHER

The Thanksgiving Storm of '71

A tremendous heavy, wet snowstorm clobbered areas of Pennsylvania and
New York state on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 25, 1971. Snow began the
night before, but continued into Thursday morning. In the
Wilkes-Barre/Scranton area of Pennsylvania, during a period of about
12 hours, close to 2 feet of snow fell with locally higher amounts.
The snow fell at the rate of 3 inches per hour at times. Trees and

the snow.
