LOL, yup, that's the one, March 13, 1993, the Storm of the Century.
This area usually only gets about 4 inches of snow a year, usually over
two dumpings of about 2 inches each, (we get more ice than snow,
usually), but in 1993, it was a blizzard for real. 50 mph winds, 2 feet
of snow that created white out conditions and 5-7 foot drifts. A fire
truck came and picked me up for work as it was the only vehicle that
would make it through. It was interesting, for sure.
