26 Years Ago, Pennsylvania Was Hit With The Worst Blizzard In History

Pennsylvania certainly has seen its fair share of snowstorms over the decades. In fact, the epic snowstorms often remain fresh in our memories. We remember where we were, what we were doing, and how the storm directly impacted us. In 1993, Pennsylvania, along with the majority of the East Coast, braced for a mid-March blizzard that would bring with it strong winds, heavy snow, and plunging temperatures, earning it the moniker of “The Storm of the Century” and “The Superstorm of 1993.”
