Where were you during the Blizzard of 1993?

I work in the newsroom with some girls from up North. They think it's funny when we talk about "The Blizzard of 1993".

I work in the newsroom with some girls from up North.  They think it's funny when we talk about "The Blizzard of 1993" because they're used to seeing lots of snow at one time.  We're not!  This weekend's snowstorm looks like it could be a substantial amount of snow depending on IF the temperature drops.  But I'm blogging today because I want to know what you were doing when the blizzard of 93 hit.  I remember I was in 8th grade living in north Georgia. We were so excited when it started snowing because we got out of school. But then the snow kept coming down.  They kept cancelling school over and over again.  When it was all said and done we had 3 feet of snow on the ground.  Needless to say, when it was time to go back to school, I was ready!!!  Do you remember the blizzard of 1993??

    I was living in the panhandle of Florida working as a 9-1-1 dispatcher. Needless to say, it was a site to behold getting 6-12 inches of snow in FLORIDA....But, it happened....We had Fire Trucks out all over the county, Ambulances were going lights and sirens to all calls, and the sheriff's department was at maximum manning....Sure was a shock, but coming to Florida after living 6 years in the nation's capital, I kinda knew what to expect with big snowfalls. Unfortunately, not everyone else did. Several accidents and falls crowded the hospitals....Fortunately, it was just a phenomenom of global warming....:o)

    We were at the Ringling Brothers Circus...It was the first night and we were enjoying the circus and walked out to a lot of snow, We lived in Seymour at that time and almost didn't make it home. NEEDLESS TO SAY THEY GAVE REFUNDS FOR THE REMAINING DAYS OF THE CIRCUS... I will never forget that....
