In 1899, Georgia Plunged Into An Arctic Freeze That Makes Last Year’s Winter Look Downright Mild

When people hear the term “arctic freeze” they often picture something prehistoric. However, in 1899, there was a freeze that swept across the entire country, affecting pretty much all of the United States. The Great Blizzard of 1899, also known as the Great Arctic Outbreak of 1899 was exceptionally severe for the east coast, including the state of Georgia. Some of the coldest temperatures and highest snowfalls recorded in state history happened during this storm, often in places where you would least expect it.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
