Looking for Pictures of Snow Jam ’82!

Please share your story and photos... !

Since starting this site in 2008, my goal has been to collect and share stories and images of Snow Jam ’82. In January 2022, forty years after the original Atlanta Snow Jam, the AJC interviewed yours truly—and graciously shared the wonderful photos below for use here. Note that the original Snow Jam images—some even in color 🤣—are below.

Atlanta’s ’73 Ice Storm

Sunday, January 7, 1973

Though not part of Snow Jam ’82, many of us were in Atlanta in 1973 when a massive ice storm caused widespread and prolonged power outages. Here’s a news video from that 70’s winter event here in Georgia. (If you find video from Snow Jam ’82, let me know!)

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then what are a thousand words worth? Don’t know! But I do know you should read some of these user-submitted Snow Jam ’82 stories! (Or this one from yours truly.)
