It was 20 years ago on March 12, a Friday, when the snow began to fall and by Saturday, March 13, Polk Countians woke up to 18 inches of snow, no electricity and frigid temperatures.
The Cedartown Standard and The Rockmart Jounral wants to share your stories from that crazy weekend with our readers. We also want any pictures you have from that time period, realizing that your little kids who were sliding in the front lawn are not so little anymore.
You can send your stories and old photos to AMadden@npco.com In the subject line, please simply type “Blizzard.” Send any old photos as
.jpg or .tif attachments, and color is preferable. The photos need to be as big as possible and at least larger than 100 kilobytes in size. Please include your full name and phone number in case we have any questions.
You can also drop off your photos at our 213 Main Street office location. Photos will be scanned and returned.
