The East Coast looks to be in the path of a major weather system that has the potential to drop 2 feet or more on the ski hills of New England. If things go as predicted, the storm will impact the north east right around the 35th anniversary of the historic blizzard of 1978. That storm produced hurricane force winds and dropped more than 2 feet of snow.
