Savannah in the 1890s experienced a number of unusual weather phenomena.  In addition to four hurricanes that hit the coast during this decade, on January 8, 1893, snow fell. Another snow storm hit February 15, 1895.  During one of these storms people enjoyed the rare accumulation on Chippewa Square.  The church cupola rises above the trees in the background.  Photo courtesy of the Georgia Historical Society.
