great loss of life at Gloucester MA. (David Ludlum)
...1901...
An intense cold front swept across the eastern U.S. The cold front produced

...1987...
A major winter storm hit the Great Lakes Region, intensifying explosively
as it crossed northern Illinois. High winds and heavy snow created blizzard
conditions in southeastern Wisconsin. Winds gusted to 73 mph, and snowfall

Chicago IL dropped three quarters of an inch in six hours to 28.96 inches,
a record low reading for December. Up to a foot of snow blanketed northern

Chicago was closed for several hours, for only the fourth time in twenty
years. High winds derailed train cars at Avon IN. Light winds and partly
sunny skies were reported near the center of the storm, a feature typical
of tropical storms. (The National Weather Summary) (Storm Data)
...1988...
High pressure in the Pacific Northwest and low pressure in the southwestern
U.S. combined to produced high winds from Utah to California. Winds gusting
to 70 mph in the San Francisco area left nearly 300,000 residents without
electricity. Winds in Utah gusted to 105 mph at Centerville. (The National
Weather Summary) (Storm Data)
...1989...
A couple of low pressure systems spread heavy snow across the northeastern

25 inches of snow in two days. Twenty-six cities in the north central U.S.
reported record low temperatures for the date. The low of 10 degrees below
zero at Wichita KS was a December record for that location. (The National
