30 Years Ago…

…a certain ‘Cinderella Team’ began its march to an unlikely National Championship.  But does anyone remember another significant Cinderella story during that run?

That was Raleigh’s last big late-season snow…over 7 inches on March 24th.

Here we are 30 years later.  I say it’s time for a repeat on both accounts!  Here’s to some wishful thinking!

For fun…here’s one model’s snow accumulation ending 3/24/13.  Plenty of time to fret over this.  Just something to watch for now.  I’m sure I don’t have to remind you how difficult it would be to pull this off so late in the season…

But hey, if the glass slipper fits…!!!

    i was on Hillsboro street in 1974 after every step of that March march! I kept my shirt on though. Anyone who says i didn’t is lying or was drunk. wait a minute, I may have been drunk. at least that is not my picture in the yearbook.

    You’d better hope not, ’cause it’ll mess up Palm Sunday and the Durafle.

    Along with most meteorologists you are 50% correct. It is indeed time for a major late-season event–the white kind, not the red and white kind!
