A family came in the other day from out of town during one of our winter snowstorms.  They had come to visit relatives and couldn’t believe all the snow we had.  They couldn’t remember it ever being like this on any other family visit and asked if this was normal?  It made them wonder how many winters has Delaware had like this.  Has there ever been snow like this in the past?

 The answer was found in our vast collection of over 800,000 photographs.  The family discovered some really cool pictures of snowstorms in Delaware.  They also looked in our newspaper clippings collection and annual reports from the  Department of Transportation.

 To view more photos of snowstorms in Delaware history visit our album on our Facebook page.
