A Massive Blizzard Blanketed Kansas In Snow In 1886 And It’s Never Been Matched Since

As the magical groundhog of weather has fortold, we’re to get six more weeks of winter. These early Kansans, however, had no idea this storm was coming, and definitely didn’t know it would last this long. January of 1886 was a rough month for these Western Kansans, for sure.

Doesn’t this storm sound terrifying! True, we’ve got heaters and better insulation, but it would be like black friday for bread and milk at your local grocery store! For more history, check out the links below.
