Where were you in January of 1993? If you were in Utah, you were buried under two feet of snow. The 1993 blizzard in Utah was six days of continuous, relentless snowfall, all across the state. This was a record-breaking snowstorm; so unyielding that state, county, and city road crews simply couldn’t keep up. The Utah National Guard was called in, and Governor Leavitt declared a state of emergency.
