The Blizzard of ’78 Changed Revere Beach — and Our City — Forever

February 9, 2018 By Journal Staff For those of us who remember vividly the Blizzard of ’78, it is something that we never will forget. For four days, the city stepped backwards in time by almost a century. Our way of life that depended on the automobile ceased to exist. People just walked down Broadway or around their neighborhoods, often hidden by the huge snowbanks towering more than 10 feet  that were created both by man and nature. Some neighborhoods, such as Beachmont around Rocky Beach, experienced severe flooding, with houses literally washed away by the high tides and waves that pounded our coastline through three tide cycles over a 32-hour period. The destruction along Revere Beach, which already was in its death knell, was virtually complete. Many of the remaining vestiges of the beach were either ended by the blizzard or were shortly to be taken down.  Some iconic …
