I believe you are referring to the blizzard of 1993 when you mention
1992. I had a friend doing a thru who had to hole-up at Blood Mtn for a
while due to the drifts. It was really quite an experience for
a number of hiker's, particularly those who were stranded in the Smokies.
I myself in 1994 started on March 6, and didn't have any problems with snow
until I hit the Smokies and got about 6-8 inches.
