20th Anniversary of “The Storm of the Century” – March 13, 1993

Springfield, Mass (WGGB)- It was 20 years ago today that a massive storm barreled up the coast burying cities from the Gulf Coast to Maine in snow. Not only snow but  hurricane force winds and severe weather accompanied this storm. For cities in the deep south like Birmingham, Alabama  it was their biggest snowstorm on record. Springfield picked up 16″ along with winds over 40 mph.  Boston saw 13″ of snow in less than 5 hours.
