Although, I was only 8 days old, and (of course) don't remember it.... It was not only a major storm in the southeast, but one heckuva storm due to the areas that received enormous amounts of snow from this doozy. I've heard many stories from people who were old enough to remember this incredible winter storm.
I believe I provided the link shown by downeastnc a few years ago to several weather fanatics. I probably have read that synopsis 4 or 5 times in the past several years.
Simply an amazing snow storm for the deep south. A few other links (below), per that epic storm.
Check out this "throwback" video from 1973, as former and late Governor of SC John West tours the havoc the snowstorm left in its wake.
