What Did You Do During The Blizzard Of 1993?
We are experiencing Winter Storm Stella and its setting records in Broome County for snow fall. But something that happened 24 years and 3 days ago is a day that I will never forget. The day was March 12th,1993.
It was the Blizzard of 93. That Friday night, I went to the Black Crowes concert at Mansfield University. The next day, I was moving to Nashville but instead of making the 14 hour drive to start a new chapter in my life, I was snowed in at a friend's place in Warren Center, Pa.
I spent the weekend at my friend Dave’s cabin (it was more like a trailer.) All of us passed the time away by playing cards, listening to music and shooting guns INSIDE....Relax, it was only a BB gun in the cabin.
On Monday, the snow plows had a chance to get me out. Then I made my trip to Nashville. I was going to continue my radio career there. I ended up only staying for 9 months then moved back home. Why? That’s a story for another day.
So what were you doing 24 years and 3 days ago?
