68 Years Ago, Nashville Was Hit With The Worst Blizzard In History

When it comes to Nashville’s weather, most of the time folks scratch their heads in confusion. Locals like to joke that if you don’t like the weather, “just wait a while, it’ll change!” More often than not, that humorous sentiment tends to be true. In 1951, however, the state decided to herald the city of Nashville with a snowstorm to beat all snowstorms. It continues to be the heaviest blizzard in the city’s history and has finagled its way into state textbooks, forever remembered for its chilly ferocity.
