...ON THIS DATE IN WEATHER HISTORY...

In 2013, a blizzard roared into Kansas.  Heavy snow
combined with 30 to 40 mph north winds to produce near
zero visibilities in many areas.  Four to eight inch
accumulations were common but the strong winds produced
drifts around 2 feet.  In 1977, dust reduced visibilities
from Eastern Virginia to Florida from the 24th to the
28th.  The dust originated from the Western Great Plains
on the 22nd and 23rd, where rip roaring gusts reached
around an incredible 100 mph in Guadalupe Pass Texas,
White Sands New Mexico and Sherman County Kansas.

In 1998, a blizzard raged for several days over the
Western Dakotas.  Lead South Dakota was snowed under as
they unofficially received between 5.5 and 6 feet.
