In 1914, it had been nearly 13 years since Meadville had seen any such snowstorm as that which buried it and all the section around it under a mantle of fully 22 inches of fleecy whiteness. On the morning of April 20, 1901, this section awoke to face a greater snowfall, the figures for that storm being a fall of three feet in about 17 hours. In the present instance, conditions were not quite so bad but they were bad enough. The snow was about 22 inches deep on the level. It began falling early Saturday and kept busy pretty much all the time until well along into Sunday. Those who pinned their weather faith to Prophet Hicks would be stronger than ever in their adherence for this was distinctly a Hicks storm, and came right on time.
