Mine was Nov 1st, 1991 here in eastern Iowa, about 4 inches if I remember correctly. I will always remember this storm as it occured at the same time as a big shooting on the U of Iowa campus.
My brother was in Van Allen hall at the same time as the shooting, but several floors up.

December 25, 2010 Christmas storm dropped about 1-2" last year. Pretty significant given I live in Atlanta metro. Earliest snow I can remember.

Easy one! October 29-30, 2011 with 10.5" of snow. I can't remember any other October snows that were more than a couple inches.

I think it was 2002, the first snowstorm when I was interested in the weather. Enough for a snowman and lots of snow to spare.

I was only 13 at the time, but this definitely sticks out in my mind.

Especially when you go from heavy rain, to extremely heavy snow and lightning.

The earliest snowstorm I can remember was the surprise nor'easter of 2000. I think it occurred in December. I was only in elementary school at the time and I remember that schools were canceling classes in the night DURING the event.

My most favorite snowstorm is a tie between the Blizzard of '06 or the blizzard from this past January. Probably leaning more towards the one from this past winter just because it was a record-breaker and it started off a month of a 3 foot snowpack. Plus it was the first time I had no school for two consecutive days, except that was trumped by the October snowstorm where I missed 6 days of classes.

Hands down, Halloween snow Oct 29-30, 16" here. Although the April 1st, 1997 was quite historical with 18" of snow and blizzard-like conditions after heavy rains.

In Dc, we were due for a break after 2 years ago and thus we really didn't see much of anything last year. My favorite is pretty much a tie between 93 and 96. We had 36 inches in NEPA for 96 and I remember the snow pile from the plow being as high as the 10' basketball rim on the street. Earliest was a Halloween storm but I forget what year. I just remember being bundled up on Halloween going into my grandparents house.

I couldn't tell you the year or how much snow we had. What I do remember is my parents making a huge deal out of it and then when I went outside the snow was over my head. I couldn't have been more than six years old so this was in the early eighties. I got to play in that sow for days. It seemed to take forever to melt.
