This was a killer storm. There were 50 mph gale winds. The town was virtually isolated for days. Four men nearly died attempting to walk home from the train station after work. They had taken the 5:00 train home from NY City and did not arrive at the Mountain Lakes train station until after 11:30 that night. Everyone walked home in those days. They tried to walk home in the wind and cold and nearly didn't make it.
