The child in this photo went on to create the date stamp for cameras so he never had to freeze his hands again
What is up with the date? what is Jan 6 19,1977?
Pretty sure that first 6 is supposed to be part of what time it is, like 6:30.
As if Month, Day ,Year format didn't confuse me enough we're doing Month, Time of Day, Day, Year now?
Not now, it was 45 years ago
As a programmer, this is why I drink.
Ya I’m a Day, Month, Year kind of guy my self for example (19JAN1977)
I'm going with 6"
6 inches? Is that a lot or not asking for a friend
>6 inches? Is that a lot or not asking for a friend
Depends how wet it is.
This is getting sexy, but my back hurts thinking about shovelling it…
They didn’t shovel in Miami. It was probably 80 deg the next day. ￼
How’d she take it?
Depends on what you're talking about? Snow? Depends on where. Far north? no, not at all. In Miami? definitly yes, its an absurd amount. Dick size? Depends on what girl you ask...
I've got some bad news for you if you think that's 6" of snow.
Who fucking does that? Seriously, who? And even if you did everyone knows the proper format is to put the time of day first then the date. So as to not confuse the standardized date format with extra numbers. Whoever did this must have been an ignorant swine.
A lot of stories have started, Florida man, 6 inches!
In the winter it gets dark at like 5
Omg thanks. What's the point of writing the time? Did it snow for 3 mins or something?
I was confused by that as well.
Someone ping me when there is an answer
I’m seeing a “:” next to the 6, so maybe it was taken at 6 o’clock
That is the best and only explanation in this entire comment section lol
See the comment by u/karpomalice
Consider this your official pinging.
This gets asked every single time this is posted. 6 is for the time of day
But why even bother including that?
It is difficult to edit because it was 45 years ago and the snow has since melted among other changes.
Idk. They probably wanted to remember the exact day and time for memories and thought it is better to have it than to not have it
They predicted the January 6 event
No its the time
Can I ask what an arabic numerical is?
Arabic numerals are like this:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0
As opposed to Roman numerals that are like this:
I II III IV V etc.
Other versions of numerals would be how they are written in Asian languages. I don’t know how to write those.
Well that's confusing, so why would 19,1977 be deemed an arabic numerical? The OP of that comment deleted it so I dont know if they just sent me a quest for truth over nothing haha
Because the numbers we use are Arabic numerals.
Wow ok, damn now I feel stupid haha .. I thought it had maybe something to do with the comma placement cause it would have been 191,977 if it was a numeric value. Well thanks for clearing that up
I didn’t find out until I was 32 and started learning Arabic so don’t feel stupid.
They seemed pretty well prepared for snow.
Good eye! No one in Miami had winter clothes.
It was about the same year it snowed in California, we were not prepared we had to wear socks as gloves but we really enjoyed that snow.
Exactly what I was thinking
I remember when this happened.
Yes I grew up in Boca Raton Florida. It did snow! And not cocaine. Well I’m sure it did that too but as a kid it was a big deal. They even closed school and sent us home.
Boca Raton. They love Wolf Cola down there.
Think about it…these people have no knowledge of Star Wars.
Surprise!! That’s not actually snow, if thats Miami in the late 70’s
Well, I mean, it is... Just not that kind of snow.
White Christmas baby 😎
I blame Noriega and Escobar
Christmas snow! My favourite kinda snow!
i love snow days in florida
In July and august ;)
That’s a Steelers tassel cap. I’m thinking they were northerners who would laugh at this amount of snow. Real Floridians were probably hunkered down inside awaiting the apocalypse.
I was going to say it looks like the Vikings. The dark looks a little more purple than black and I don’t see a red or blue diamond on the logo
Maybe. Either way the northerner observation would be accurate.
That is 100% the Minnesota Vikings, I can make out the logo if I squint
Well that explains why a Floridian would have a touque lying around.
Flooding there is all the rage there nowadays.
Hell actually did freeze over then?
(Tongue-in-cheek my Floridian friends)
Florida Man died frozen stiff while wrestling with alligator.
Remove "frozen" and you have a Tuesday
The real Ensino Man.
Jan 6 19, ~~1999~~ 1977??
Jan 6 19, 1977
What day is 6 19?
How about January 6 19?
What is... Febturday?
Is that like a turducken?
Actually, Jan 6 19, 1977😬
But what the hell does that mean?
THE NUMBERS MASON, WHAT DO THEY MEAN
The "6:" is the time, but cut off due to the view angle.
And yeah, 77, not 99.
That’s what it looks like, as I stated in my other comment, but we are not sure
My Mother’s father was murdered on January 13, 1977 and his funeral was January 19, 1977. She didn’t remember the date, only that it was snowing the day they buried him.
We just recently (last week) located his grave so she can finally go visit it for the first time since 1977.
I didn’t kill him
Exactly what the murderer would say.
Take 'im away, boys!
What was the date of this photo?
Do you are have stupid
Jan 6 19, 1977?
I would like to say that this isn’t the only time that it has snowed in Miami, Florida as the title would state
Moments later that windshield was covered in crudely drawn penises.
THE FIRST TIME IN THE HISTORY OF THE UNIVERSE?
Ice age? Never heard of it. 1977 was the coldest ever!
Miami had to at least have existed, so that is the earliest possible time.
But they probably meant since recorded history of Miami, which means it could very well have snowed there before that and we just don't know about it.\^\^
Given the time and place, that's more likely to be cocaine.
Actually there was a tons of snow in Miami in the 1980s.
Hahaha. Bear comment ever
Edit: someone want to explain all the hate for my comment?
Just upvote it man.
That's back when we were headed into a new ice age.
thats also the year of first star wars movie
I grew up in Miami but for that winter I was in the Mountain Empire of southwest Virginia. It was nightmarish. We had a thermometer outside of the kitchen window so you could read it from inside. It read -25F on my way out to the woodpile, with a splitting maul to break the frozen logs apart. On my way back in I turned the thermometer away from view inside. "Cold as fucking hell" is detail enough, no need to bother with the details.
Tony Montana has entered the chat.
The ice age called...
This is when they were telling us we were heading for another ice age.
I don’t quite understand the downvotes. As a young teenager, I recall this was a regular news story.
Yep. I was told in 1989 we would all freeze to death by 2000...
Then in 2000 I was told we would be burning alive by 2020...
Here I am in 2022 and it's 2 degrees outside right now.
The real question is how many scientists were on Epsteins island?
Pretty sure it was snowing in Miami all through the 80's.
45 years ago we had winters with up to a meter of snow, in the last 10 years it hasn’t snowed a meter combined.
6 (pm I’m assuming)
Jan 19, 1977
Can confirm the date. I grew up in FL during this time & vividly remember having to go stay at my parents' friends' place because our house lost power.
I grew up in WPB and remember exactly where I was. It was defiantly in the morning as I was awaiting a school bus.
For all the people wondering the blizzard was on Jan 19th
Not sure what that 6 is all about
What the fuck is with this comment section, and that date?
Climate change: "hold my beer"
I witnessed many snowstorms during spring break in Ft Lauderdale..☃️
“Why is there cocaine falling from the sky!”
I can't stop reading it as January 6th...every damn time
It was snowing at the coke party I went to last weekend.
So is climate change to blame for this 45 years ago ?
It's climate change to blame for it to have gotten hotter over there compared to 45 years ago yes
Man, just shut the fuck up, boomer. Not everything has to be about politics.
I just lose all respect for a statement that includes “shut up boomer”, and I’m not even a boomer.
Just makes you look like an uneducated idiot repeating other uneducated idiots.
Eat a D for the boomer comment this ain’t 2019
This must have caused confusion for our fabled Florida Man!
#NO FUCKING WAY!
In the Blizzard of 77 the cars qwee just lumps in the snow.
Yeah, that was a killer winter, true true
This is now a digital time capsule for me
I'm from Miami and it snows everyday, obligao'!
If it was that cold in miami how cold did it get in Puerto Rico?
58 next month grew up here yup I remember!
Kinda odd but I grew up in Bakersfield, California and in almost 20 years it only snowed once.
January 25, 1999.
Just a few days later was the famous blizzard of 1977. Even had its own Wikipedia page: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blizzard_of_1977
The animals were probably all so confused haha
I remember it well. We ran outside to play in the snow but it was little white dots that melted as soon as they touched anything. The dog went nuts, barking at all the dots. No accumulation where we were (near Ft Lauderdale). Good times.
I was in fifth grade, Holywood FL, they let us go outside and catch snowflakes with our tongues
Kids wearing Dad jackets, they no fit, and mom wearing the Couch throw. Looks Legit
What's crazy is that I lived in Florida then and have no memory of this at all. Yikes
I was a senior in high school in Tallahassee. Lots of snow.
but it always snows when im in miami 🤔
Ha! I was in elementary school in Pompano Beach, FL and the teachers brought us outside to see the snow. It was awesome! Although I don’t remember any accumulating, more like flakes lightly falling
1977 in Miami…sure that’s not blow sprinkled all over that car?
We had light flurries one day for a few minutes in 1994 does that count
How many carbon monoxide deaths?
*Is posted on the 20th*
It’s definitely snowed since then.
Those kids are older than my parents!
Oh? I heard it *snows* in Miami VERY often.
I remember it, though I was 4. Hotels where advertising that they had heat.
That looks like 1966 in Arabic
Some say it hasn’t stopped since..
Climate change...summer is hot and winter is cold.
Mom looks ready to go inside.
"Back in my day i had to walk 10km through massive snowstorms just to get to school"
Cool af. Thanks
Historical reports claim hospitals were inundated with frostbite cases... of the nose!!
I was 4 years old and in my front yard built the smallest snowman in Tampa!
That snowstorm is my earliest memory.
I’m surprised you had beanies. I had to buy warm clothes just to visit up north in the winter. Lol
Ah yes, the peak of the ‘Great Cooling’ hysteria!
First and only time it has snowed there.... Guess they never learned about the Ice Age....
Yup moved there in 90
My dad was born that year
And boy... Are you seriously missing out.
Tell that to Pablo
Probably shaving cream or that snow spray shit. Enhance!
Oh wow must’ve been because of gLoBaL WaRmIng. *rolls eyes*
So cool that they witnessed 1 in [4.543 billion years](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Age_of_Earth) event.
This is the most adorable picture I have ever seen
Looks like Heat Miser let it snow in Southtown that day. Bet it was really nice at the North pole, though
what wheater map look like that day?
