In 1978, West Virginia Plunged Into An Arctic Freeze That Makes This Year’s Winter Look Downright Mild

Every winter can seem like the worst one to some folks. So far, West Virginia has seen some very cold temperatures and several inches of snow, but this was nothing compared to the Great Blizzard of 1978.

While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
