A Massive Blizzard Blanketed Pittsburgh In Snow In 1993 And It Will Never Be Forgotten

Pittsburgh’s had its fair share of memorable snow storms over the years, like the Big Snow of 1950 that dumped 27.5 inches of snow in the city and beyond over Thanksgiving weekend. Now, however, let’s journey a little less further back in time to the Blizzard of ’93 in Pittsburgh that left the city at a standstill – except, of course, for one annual tradition.
