Record snowfall in Montreal, 1971 and 2012

Here's a picture of me in 1971, the day after the infamous snowstorm. It was March and the next day was warm. See my bell bottom jeans.

I was 5 foot 10 inches or so, so the pile of snow was high.

I didn't shovel today, my husband did and I didn't shovel back then, my father did.

Now, it seems to me it was more windy in 1971 so the snow piled high in front of the house, covering the door.

My husband has a snow picture taken on that day too... somewhere in an old family album.
