For Those of You Who Are Bummed We’re Not Getting a Blizzard
It should have been Philly’s snowstorm of the year – maybe even decade. But let’s face it, Winter Storm Stella is turning out to be a little less exciting than we thought (at least in Philly).
We’re getting used to the disappointment when it comes to snow – we’ve already been let down several times this winter. But if it’s starting to seem like blizzards (with actual, substantial snow) are a thing of the past in the city, let this video from Philly filmographer Cory J. Popp serve as a reminder of a time when the city looked like a winter wonderland – and not a slushy, windy mess. (And maybe do some research on global warming while you’re at it?)
Popp captured the footage above during the blizzard of January 2016 – the city’s fourth-largest, which brought 22 inches of snow. That storm – Winter Storm Jonas – blanketed the region with so much powder that Governor Tom Wolf requested federal funds to help the state recover.
