In the deep dark winter, Mother Nature fills the world with brilliant, glistening snow and ice that makes everything look clean and sparkly. But it can also make everything very, very dangerous, and painful, as people who were stuck shoveling snow in the polar vortex of 2014 can attest. Believe it or not though, the year’s massive winter storms and frigid temperatures weren’t even the worst in history: here are 10 times that the winter really kicked mankind’s butt!
1.) The Winter Of 1848.
2.) The White Hurricane.
3.) The Great Blizzard Of 1888.
4.) The Great Blizzard Of 1899.
5.) The Knickerbocker Storm.
