i actually think this last snow fall was the worst i had ever seen first hand. i was in grand island/omaha nebr for it....not sure of totals in those 2 places but over the 4 days that it didnt stop snowing i would say most i have ever seen.
I was a student at ISU and flew home to Denver (Westminster) and got this. 34" of snow in Thornton which is right by Westminster. The only time I saw snowmobiles go down our city streets. Our cars were totally gone from site and the chain link fences in our back yard the same. But it was Denver so even that much snow can melt in a hurry but it lasted 48 days on the ground which is unheard of for Denver.
We got 20 inches dumped on us in 2005 in March in Minnesota. I'm sure sometime in the 80s too more than that...seems to me there were a few 25 inch storms but in my conscious memory it was 20 inches about five years ago.
We had 22 inches in Raleigh NC in 2000. Craziest thing. They talked about a couple inches over night, we woke up the next morning and were in shock. Nothing moved for a week. Had to wait for snow plows from MI, plus my street never was plowed. Good thing we could walk to a grocery store just to get out of the house.
