An 97-98 El Nino storm did that. It brought 7 inches overnight and washed out large portions of the sidewalk at the park near my house. The normally 1 foot deep creek became a 25 foot deep raging river.

February 8, 2013 still ranks as the top snowstorm of my life in the Toronto area. Close to 40cm (15in) of snow measured at my home in the northern suburbs of the GTA from Feb 7th-9th. Just an awesome storm!

January 22-23 2016 EC Blizzard has eclipsed the others - but only in the sheer awesomeness of the volume of snow and the insane 3-4"/Hr rates. Otherwise, it was a "well behaved" pure snow storm that delivered 33-36" in the local back yards, and nearly that officially.

But March 1993 will be forever hard to eclipse so far as storms that "had it all", including t-snow lasting for nearly an hour, insane winds and drifts and nearly 2' of snow when it was all said and done.

Agree my friend. New Tripoli go smothered with that one. We rode the DMZ(changeover line)for a few hours, as it changed to sleet for a time, but only bout 2-3 hours. Allentown mixed longer. As you know, just north of DMZ is where the best snows are. What I remember most was the infamous "backlash". remember ch 6 out of Philly(old, old days of tv forecasts), with Dave Roberts warning that the break would not last. As we can do here in E PA with the big ones, the backfill, bands rotating from the east and northeast added a foot of snow to our totals. The duration of that storm was incredible. The winds were incredible. Lot more destruction, and area was in lockdown for several days. Snow emergency lasted, I think almost 2 days after conclusion. Side streets in Allentown were a disaster for weeks. Our 33 incher this past winter was a snow shower as far as aftermath compared to '93. '96 was a close second here. Huge wrap around with that one also.

Sometimes, the winter storm cause too much complications for the people. The storm makes it difficult for the people to walk around or even drive the cars and if the storms are heavy then the streets and roads are just buried in the snow.

I think it was 2008 we got an 14" snowstorm the day after Christmas... I live in Virginia beach so that is exceedingly rare... the closest I ever came to a white Christmas. It was warm too, like 32 degrees just cold enough so we sat around a fire as the snow accumulated.

Jan 96 and Dec 2009 both passed the 28 inch mark--but Mar 93 with only 11 inchs , due to 6 hours of sleet might be the winner. I was a teen living with my grandma up in a Blue Ridge Mt hollow about 10 miles from where I live now.. With the electric out and with the smell of the wood stove and kerosene lamps ( I grew up calling kerosene - coal oil )that night as the storm wound down listening to the roar of the winds in the mountains that eventually came down and slammed the house while curled up on the sofa closer to the stove cant be beat... Made me feel like I was back in the 1800's... Aww good memories
