It’s Been 25 Years Since The Blizzard Of 1993
As you dig out from yesterday and today's Nor'Easter, keep in mind that it could be worse. Much worse.
Twenty-five years ago, in March of 1993, a large portion of the East coast was paralyzed by what many called "The Storm of The Century". At its height, it stretched from Canada to Central America.
According to wikipedia, the storm brought tornadoes and rain to Cuba and the Southern states and piles of snow to the Northeast and Canada. But, the snow and ice was not limited to the Northern states. Atlanta, Birmingham, and Boone (NC) were crippled by snow. The highest snowfall totals (69 inches) were measured on Mt. Le Conte, Tennessee
Over 300 people lost their lives and over $2 BILLION (in 1993 money) in damages.
