60 Moments: The Blizzard of 1993

In the annals of weather history, it is known as the superstorm of 1993.

A fierce mid-March blizzard broke a nearly 10-year snow drought in our region. Two feet of snow whipped around by howling 50 mile per hour winds and sub 10 degree arctic temperatures buried much of Appalachia under a mountain of white just one week before spring.

Airports, schools and yes, even Jim's Spaghetti House, closed up shop.

Huntington turned into a ghost town during the blizzard of 93.
