27 Years Ago, North Carolina Was Hit With The Worst Blizzard In History
Western North Carolina is no stranger to late season snowfall. Even in May and June, the snow has been known to make a rare, occasional appearance. And in most areas, March can be late in the season for significant amounts of new powder to fall. But not in 1993, the year North Carolina experienced the worst blizzard in history.

For those who endured the Storm of the Century, memories of the storm and the days that follow are a brutal reminder of the power of a colossal weather event – even when you see it coming. In total, at least 270 deaths across the east were attributed to the Storm of the Century, a.k.a. the Blizzard of ’93. Do you remember this event from just 27 years ago? Feel free to share your memories… our comments section is always open for discussion.
