    Feb. 13, 1983: The worst snowstorm in five years surprised southern and coastal New England with gale-force winds and nearly 2 feet of fine, powdery snow that halted most forms of transportation and left at least five persons dead. The intensity of the snowfall matched that of the Blizzard of 1978, but the National Weather Service at Logan Airport pointed out that the earlier storm lasted the better part of 48 hours while yesterday’s northeaster was over in about 18 hours.
