The December 1969 nor’easter was an intense winter storm that most notably impacted the Northeastern United States and southern Quebec on December 25–28. The multi-faceted storm system was blamed for at least 20 deaths in the United States and 15 in Canada. After developing over Texas and spawning several damaging tornadoes in the Deep South, the cyclone advanced to the Eastern Seaboard, dropping more than 1 ft (30 cm) of snow as far south as Washington, D.C. The nor’easter intensified and slowed as it moved into New England, delivering 40 inches (100 cm) of snowfall in some places, with heavy rain near the coast and a severe ice storm in Vermont and New Hampshire. In Canada, Montreal received 27.5 in (70 cm) of snow over a period of 60 hours. Equipment failures and drifts up to 30 ft (9 m) left roadways blocked for many days throughout the affected region, and some communities became inaccessible except by snowmobile. The weight of the snow and ice, combined with gale-force winds, collapsed roofs and brought down power lines. Ice jams and excessive rainfall created widespread flooding in eastern New England.
