Times Leader

DESCRIBED AS one of the largest and most intense storms in a century and affected a large portion of the United States was March 12-14, 1993. This blizzard paralyzed the eastern seaboard with record cold, snow and wind. 35.6 inches of snow fell in 24 hours from 10 a.m. Saturday thru 10 a.m. Sunday. A previous record of 27.2 was set in January of 1925. Many places were closed down and weddings had to be postponed or carried on by travellers staying at churches and wherever they could. It was a day that will never be forgotten. As you can tell from the photo, cars had to be dug out and roads were impassable for several days.
