The Blizzard of 2013 vs. The Blizzard of 1978

Hmmm...  Haven't I seen this before?
Battening the hatches down; the winds are gonna blow.
Weathermen predict that Massachusetts will get snow...
Not the kind they're measuring in inches, but in feet.
It could be a week before I make it up my street.

Have to hit the grocery store (again) 'cause I forgot
Only one or two last minute items; not a lot.
These days, any time I hear a blizzard's on the way,
I stock up on everything for an extended stay.

When the winds are howling and it's piling up outside
I feel better knowing that my pantry's well supplied.
Other blizzards came and went in 35 long years;
Back when all I thought to buy was cigarettes and beers.
