Vanishing TV Character - Simone the Dog Does anyone remember the pooch the Partridge Family had during the show's first season? It was called Simone. (Apparently one of the sitcom's creators had a male dog named Simon, so he just feminized the name for the female TV dog.) Simone only appeared in a handful of episodes. Most famously, in an episode titled But The Memory Lingers On, Simone and the human Partridges are sprayed by a skunk that climbed aboard their bus during a picnic stop. Even though Simone vanished without explanation after just a few episodes, its caricature lived on: The family band's logo (which appeared on Chris Partridge's drums) showed the forgotten dog throughout the four-season run of the show.

Vanishing TV Character - Thorny Thornberry The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet ran for 435 episodes over an amazing 14 seasons on ABC from 1952 to 1966--a record for a non-animated sitcom that still stands today. From 1952 to 1957 Don DeFore played the Nelsons' good-natured next-door neighbor "Thorny" Thornberry in 96 episodes. (Whatever Thorny's real first name was, it was never mentioned). Thorny often exchanged playful barbs with Ozzie Nelson and gave him ill-timed advice. Sometimes he got caught up in whatever amusing complications befell the Nelson patriarch and his family. DeFore was nominated for an Emmy for Best Supporting Actor in 1955 and was generally a popular part of the program. However, the show began to focus on different neighbors in the late 1950s (primarily Joe and Mary Jane Randolph and Doc Williams). Thorny, despite his popularity, just vanished without any explanation. DeFore later had a starring role in the 1960s sitcom Hazel in which he played Hazel's employer George Baxter.

Great Blizzard of 1888 Snowstorms have paralyzed major cites for as long as North America has had major cities. The most devastating storm was likely the Great Blizzard of 1888 that crippled most of America's major eastern seaboard cities north of Washington DC and into Canada. What made this blizzard so bad was that it came as a total surprise. In the days leading up to March 12, 1888, there had been unseasonably mild weather. People on the streets of New York City were walking around without overcoats. The "Great White Hurricane," as some folks dubbed it, struck with a fury. Torrential rains began falling, and on March 12 the rain changed to heavy snow, temperatures plunged, and a ferocious wind began. The storm continued unabated for the next 36 hours. Sources vary, but the National Weather Service estimated that 50 inches of snow fell in Connecticut and Massachusetts and 40 inches covered New York and New Jersey. Winds blew up to 48 miles an hour, creating snowdrifts 40 to 50 feet high. The resulting transportation crisis led to the creation of the New York subway, approved in 1894 and begun in 1900. Telegraph and telephone wires snapped, isolating New York, Boston, Philadelphia, and Washington for days. Two hundred ships were grounded, and at least 100 sailors died. Fire stations were immobilized, and property loss from fire alone was estimated at $25 million. Overall, more than 400 deaths were reported.
