This documentary recounts the Wyoming blizzard of 1949 that saw a cold front sweep down from Canada and create a series of winter storms that lasted for 45 days. Snow drifts accumulated as high as 20-30 feet, resulting in all bus, rail and air traffic being shut down and the military having to drop in supplies to help keep people and livestock alive.
