It’s now time for a special northern Arizona StoryCorps.

Fifty years ago this week, the biggest blizzard in recorded state history buried the Navajo Nation beneath seven feet of snow, trapping an estimated 60,000 people in freezing temperatures for more than a week. Across the region, 51 people died in the whiteout even as helicopters dropped supplies for those left in the snow. During the storm, Lillie Begaye was stranded on her family’s remote sheep farm, 25 miles from the nearest road. She came to StoryCorps with her 13-year-old grandson to remember that time.
