The headline for the “City of Rockville Newsletter” from March 7, 1979, was “Blizzard of ’79 — the Aftermath.” “With few exceptions, outstanding cooperation and community spirit were displayed” during the emergency, according to the article. But there was some confusion about the city’s snow removal procedures that required explanation — hence the article. These days, you can simply turn to Rockville’s website for that information, at www.rockvillemd.gov/winterweather.
