I would say its a tie between the miss of the March 2001 storm. watching the amounts lower from 2 to 3 feet to 2 to 4 inches over a 2 day period was terribly depressing.
The other one was a smaller storm that was supposed to hit the NYC area in Dec '89. I remember distinctly that we were supposed to get 4 to 8 inches of snow followed by an arctic blast that was going to all but assure us of a white christmas. It began snowing at 28 degrees, then the wind changed around to the east and the temps shot to 40 in less than an hour and it rained heavy the next 6 hours before it turned to flurries on the backend and we had 0 accumulation. I was depressed for days

Worst: March 1st, 2009. An area from Augusta to Columbia got dryslotted and we didn't see a flake. Went under a WS Warning too and even though it was noticeable we wouldn't get anything, it didn't get canceled.
Best: There are 2 that were my best. January 2-3, 2002 and the recent storm on February 12th. On January 2-3, 2002 Augusta Bush kept switching from snow to freezing rain and back to snow but I think we stayed all snow in South Augusta as my dad said we got about 6 inches.
The snowstorm on the 12th was very recent, but its noteworthy because it was the best snow my area had seen in 8 years. Kids here who barely remembered the January 2002 snow were guaranteeing the prediction would fail. I was doubtful but the conditions were different from the March 1st storm. Lower clouds, an ominous look to them. We went home 3 hours early. Eventually (at 3:30 which is concidentally the time I usually get home) a light rain and sleet was falling but it switched to moderate snow quick. It didn't get bad until around dinnertime so we could've stayed at school but nobody cared. It was awesome in many ways because my parents and I were able to keep power and I was able to nail my dad with snowballs without getting pounded back onto with a lot of snowballs.

Dangerous: January 2004 ice storm. My county was stupid enough to put us in school. I'll save a long story because it is a long story.
