Farfaglia is a retired elementary school teacher, former director of Camp Hollis, now retired and focusing his attention writing and supporting local authors.

Farfaglia has conducted countless hours of research on this weather phenomenon.

Additionally, Farfaglia has also written a book about former SUNY Oswego professor Bob Sykes.

Both books are being released simultaneously and are available at the river’s end bookstore in Oswego.

Farfaglia  provided us with wonderful pictures of the storm and snow accumulations around the area.

The 50th anniversary of this weather event is coming up the end of this month.

And, by popular demand, Farfaglia will be returning to Oswego Rotary next Tuesday to conclude his program on the Blizzard of ’66.
