Who was here during the blizzard in 1993? I was working the 3-11 shift in Oak Ridge on Friday when it started and I barely made it home. If I had been on a 4-12 shift I believe I would not have. Our power never went out and it was beautiful. I had a friend who was up in the Cherokee National Forest that day but got home before it really started. Others had to be rescued by national guard helicopters. The people who reported to work that night as I left were stuck for several days. They got paid for it though.
