Town says blizzard of '78 taught very valuable lesson about dumping snow into river, but can't remember what it was

The town remembers dumping the snow, but cannot recall the "invaluable" lesson learned from disposing the crippling amounts of powder from the 1978 blizzard into the local waterway. "It really was a great little lesson, but we can't quite remember what it was. [The town's residents have] all been thinking really hard about it. Yeah, I got nothing," said Pete Dempsey, 61, town councilman. "Sally Baker down on Main Street thought she remembered, but then at the last minute said she really didn't. I don't know what to make of this whole thing. Was it a lesson not to dump, or was it a lesson to go ahead and dump snow into the river? We may never know."
