Mother Nature, on Wednesday, Drops Symbolic Dusting of Snow on the 20th Anniversary of ‘The Blizzard of 1993’


March 13, 2013. On Wednesday, Mother Nature dropped a symbolic dusting of snow on the anniversary of ‘The Blizzard of 1993.’ Of course, the reminder was slight – as the ground is barely covered in snow. 20 years ago today, so much snow came down in such a short amount of time that cars were completely covered in snow and the storm was dubbed ‘The Storm of the Century” or the “Superstorm.”

Over the next few days, winds reached 100 mph and temperatures dipped below freezing and an incredible amount of snow covered the High Country – upwards of three feet of snow in some places. In light of the anniversary, the National Weather Service produced a report detailing the event. Check it out here: www.erh.noaa.gov/gsp/localdat/cases/2013/Review_March1993_Superstorm.pdf
