Over 120 Years Ago, Arkansas Was Hit With The Worst Blizzard In History
Weird and wild weather certainly isn’t unusual for Arkansas but one winter surpasses the rest of our freak arctic outbursts – the Great Blizzard of 1899. Arkansans have weathered all sorts of record winter storms from ice to snow and everything in between but our great- and great great-grandparents were frozen solid for a long weekend. To this day, it remains one of the worst blizzards to ever hit the U.S. Let’s look back to this unbelievably cool bit of history.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
