1888 & 2012

Due to the storm back east the most recent event has caused the NYSE to close for two consecitive days. This is the first time that has occurred since 1888. Didn't they have severe winter storms that year in the west, most notably Wyoming and Idaho that wiped out vast herds of cattle and wildlife?

I could be off by a year or two. Mother nature and history seem to have a way of repeating themselves.
