This Day in History: 1914-03-01
The biggest snowfall in years hit Mawah. Heavy snow began to fall as the new month came in accompanied by 80 mph winds. School was closed for 2 days. Few trains run until the third. Almost all electric and telephone wires were down. Since the Rockland Electric Co. could not erect new ones they leaned temporary ones against stones so that service could be restored. It was reported that only 12 telephones were operating in Ramsey. This storm was said to have caused more damage than the blizzard of 1888 here since we had no wires then.
