24 Years Ago Today- Blizzard of ’93’

The Southern Tier has a history with snowstorms over the years, but this could be one of the biggest since the blizzard of ‘93’ dumped a foot and a half of snow on Binghamton.

I’m not sure if there is a scientific explanation for blizzards that occur just a few weeks before spring, but I remember that weekend in mid-March of 1993, I was living on the North side of Binghamton and recall everything shut down.

ATV’s and SUV’s where not on the roads yet, and most people were more willing to walk than to take their front wheel drive vehicles for a romp in the snow.

I was actually working here at the Hawk and I recall putting on my boots and winter coat and walking down Chenango Street to the Security Mutual building to our studios which were located on the 5th floor at that time.

Hurricane like winds and heavy snow crippled the southern tier and most of the northeast with automobiles buried in snow.

A wise old man once told me that if you pay attention you’ll notice that we always seem to get a major snowfall a week or two around St Patrick’s Day, and although we don’t get storms of this magnitude every year, I have been paying attention and he was right.
