A little history lesson for you. 

Tuesday marked the 19th anniversary of the 1997 snowstorm that crippled much of Omaha.

Thick, wet snow clung to tree branches, leaving a 50-million dollar mess.     

 Five people lost their lives and nearly 300,000 people lost power that day.

Do you remember where you were that day?
