Remembering The Great Snow of '73


Here in the south, one of the most exciting things that can happen in winter is snow. It doesn't happen very often, and when it does it’s usually memorable. Everyone gets excited and terrified all at the same time, schools let out and people clean out the grocery stores. There's something about snow that makes us southerners excited; the rarity!  

With the weather forecasting snow for parts of Georgia this weekend, we thought we would dig deep into the vintage vault and bring you video courtesy of YouTube user alston1028 from Macon's great snow of 1973.

The sight of snow, let alone the thought of snow makes southerners go crazy.  Don't believe us?  Check out this video clip from GPB Macon of native Maconite John Carey who observed a strange sight during Macon's 1973 blizzard.
