69 Years Ago, Pittsburgh Was Hit With The Worst Blizzard In History

We, Pittsburghers, know a thing or two about blizzards. In fact, snow – no matter how deep – doesn’t scare us. Nor does the cold and the ice. Need proof? Unless the roads close due to bad weather, Pittsburghers will venture out, going about our normal routines. And, we’ve all seen (or maybe we are) Pittsburghers wearing shorts when the snow is waist-deep. Today, let’s journey back to 1950 when Pittsburgh experienced its worst blizzard in history, at least to date.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life.
