Over 120 Years Ago, Mississippi Was Hit With The Worst Blizzard In History
Snow is pretty rare in Mississippi. And blizzards in Mississippi? Well, they’re practically non-existent, but they do hit the Magnolia State from time to time. The worst blizzard in Mississippi history was the Great Blizzard of 1899. Dubbed “the Snow King,” it hit the U.S. between February 12th and 14th, bringing with it freezing temperatures and plenty of snow and ice. To this day, it remains not only one of the worst blizzards in Mississippi, but the worst to ever hit the U.S.
