Big Snow of 1950

The “Big Snow of 1950” began on Thanksgiving afternoon, Thursday, November 23. By Saturday, a record 33 inches had fallen and almost everything in Lawrence County (in Western Pennsylvania) was shut down. Farmers had difficulty getting to their barns to care for their animals. Since milk trucks could not get through, soon all milk cans were filled, leaving no room for continued production.

In the cities and towns, nearly all commercial activity ceased. Fortunately, electric service continued and telephone service was provided on an emergency basis. Large snow-moving equipment was brought in from elsewhere and some streets and roads began to be opened to a degree as early as Monday.

The streets in New Castle were filled with snow as shop keepers tried to conduct their businesses.

This amazing natural occurrence is exquisitely captured in this one hour video masterpiece offered exclusively by the Lawrence County Historical Society.
