Your story reminds me of one my grandmother had told me. Her grandparents had emigrated from Bavaria in southern Germany sometime in the 1880s. They lived in in Flatbush. When her grandmother looked out a window, she had a heart attack. She had never seen such a thing in their homeland. The snow had drifted up to the second or third floor in the house. She had never seen snow in Bavaria. The blizzard of 1887 crippled the city, and people walked across the frozen East River to Manhattan from Brooklyn. (I've tried to get more info on this blizzard on Wikipedia, but no dice.)
