White Christmas: A Yuletide Nightmare

Record #:
Thousands of families across western North Carolina will remember the white Christmas of 1981 as something of a Yuletide nightmare. The severe Christmas Eve storm that covered the region in snow also piled heavy loads of ice on power lines, forcing an estimated twenty-thousand families to celebrate without electricity. Several citizens describe how they dealt with the storm and celebrated Christmas without electricity.
