Billy Sunday Snowstorm

Well, happy Snow Day #1 of what promises to be a brutal winter.

On March 1, 1914, the "Billy Sunday" blizzard dumped as much as 6 feet of snow on the region. The snowstorm interrupted evangelist Bill Sunday's revival in Scranton, stranding a number of attendees at the host's tabernacle, hence the name.

The storm saw snow drifts as high as 18 feet.
