Mill Graves, 9, shoveled snow to clear his driveway on Richmond Road on January 17, 1994, as a major snow storm moved across the state. Snow depths ranged from 3 inches in southwestern Kentucky to 25 inches in Robertson County, the hardest hit spot in the state. Lexington had 10 inches. Louisville had 15.9 inches, breaking a record of 15.7 inches set 16 years prior to this snow, in the blizzard of 1978. Kentucky Governor Brereton Jones declared a state of emergency on the 17th and closed all the interstates and the Blue Grass Parkway. Photo by Mark Cornelison | Staff
