Flashback: ‘The Storm of the Century’

9/3/2020 (Permalink)

Here in the South, we are not as well equipped to handle significant snowfall as our fellow Northerners who experience it every year. Some may even joke that we can’t handle snowfall, period.

One year, we didn’t have a choice. We are sentimental today and decided to reminisce. Do you remember the ‘The Storm of the Century’, ‘granddaddy of ‘em all’, the ‘Superstorm of 1993’? If not, let us refresh your memory...7 inches of snow fell on Huntsville! As strong as a category 3 hurricane, but with freezing temperatures and snow, the ‘snowicane’ hit all 67 counties in Alabama with snow.

Don’t worry, the winter-time feels didn’t last long. It was below freezing that Sunday and back into the 60s by Tuesday. For a brief moment in time, we got to experience what some Northerners see as a normal winter.

Now, back to our scolding summer...
