93 superstorm hands down for my area.I was 16 in high school, I lived at the foot of The Great Smoky Mtns National Park in sevier county TN.Mt leconte recieved 60" of snow and I could see that mtn from my house we ended up with 3ft of snow.Schools were closed for a month.The power was out for 3 weeks and if you didnt have a four wheeler you couldnt get to the grocery store for quite some time.I just wished I had took pics because I may never see 3ft of snow again in my lifetime.

Blizzard of 96. Still the benchmark for east coast blizzards.

After that, Pres. Day II in 2003, then the Blizzard of 2010 then the Blizzard of 2009.

I've got a few...

New Years Day storm of 1999 in Central IL Shut down Central IL for days and some areas of Peoria didn't get snow removed for weeks. They also started to dump snow in the Illinois River due to the amount.

November 30th-December 1st 2006 in Central MO. I was in the National Guard and we were tasked to help stranded motorist on I-70 which was closed from Kingdom City to Booneville. Also had Thundersnow with CG strikes.

I've got some data from the New Years storm '99... although it was a changeover here we still ended up with 6-11" I guess. I've got radar for IN/OH/MI too.

In my memory, I'm going to have to say April 2007. 2 feet of snow over a few days around Easter, with very little falling during the day. On the day before Easter I tried to go sledding, but the snow was too deep and my sled just sunk into the snow. We'd also gotten our trampoline out before the storm and on two different days of the storm, I shoveled off knee-deep snow off of it.

I think that even though the storm was not the biggest of my life so far, it's my favorite because of the winter before it. That winter made a total comeback after it's awful start.

Honorable mentions would be November 2000 (meteorologically amazing storm), V-Day '07(Only a foot, but I just like this storm), Jan 8-9, 2009 (21" of surprise snow and 7" of synoptic the day after), and the beginning of this January(35.5").


--------------------
Winter 2010-11 Snow: 148.0"
Winter 2009-10 Snow: 128.3"
Winter 2008-09 Snow: 175.0"

I guess for me it would have to be a blizzard in early April 1997. All the snow it dumped pretty much guaranteed that the Red River would flood that spring, causing devastation to Grand Forks and lots of surrounding communities in North Dakota and southern Manitoba. Winnipeg was spared due to the Floodway, but just barely.... I would say that was our worst (I hesitate to say best) blizzard, as it had a powerful impact on the region. I don't actually remember the blizzard itself though; I was 14 at the time and less interested in weather than I am now, so to me it would have been just another snowstorm. I do, of course, remember the flood.

I'm from Seattle, and the best snowstorm we ever had was Dec 2008 . Seattle is built on hills , and nobody knows how to drive in snow , so it was bedlam ! The windstorm in Dec 2006 was even more dramatic - the Haunakkah Eve storm.

I have gone through many snowstorms in my lifetime, first the 1969 NYC snowstorm
known as the Lindsey snowstorm as I was growing up in Manhattan that was a
real whopper. Then the 1978 Blizzard in the New York area, that was some
storm. A very intense storm stalled SE of Long Island Feb. 1978. I experienced
very heavy wind driven snow accompanied by 60 mph wind gusts from the NE
there were 5 foot drifts in my area. When that storm moved away 24 inches
fell on L.I. Then there was the blizzard of 1996. It was a sunday night, monday
morning blizzard. I drove to work that monday morning, no cars were on the
road. When I got to my job, just me and a few other people showed up
and my boss let us go home. 20 inches fell with that storm. I had to dig
my car out of 5 -6 foot drifts. Wow what a storm that was.

Gotta go with the december 16, 2007 snowstorm here in Ottawa.

The storm gave totals of just above 13 inches to 20 inches of snow throughout the city. What was remarkable about this snowstorm is that over a foot of it fell in a 6 hour period and during the peak of day, 10:00am to 4:00pm. I have never seen it snow so hard for so long before. Nothing even close to this (and we've had some big snowstorms in Ottawa before).

Bus service was all but cancelled for the day. Many/most areas had bus service cancelled since the snow got too deep too fast for the snowplows to keep up and I actually know someone who got stranded in a part of the city and had to wait until the next day to get home (they stayed at a friend's house overnight). This was, from my understanding, the biggest shutdown of the "Ottawa Public Bus Service" ever due to a snowstorm. My area had bus service shut down completely for a long time.

It is also the only snowstorm that I can remember that has ever had garbage pick-up cancelled and what's remarkable about that is that the cancelled garbage service was on the day after the snowstorm since the snowstorm was on a sunday. School bus service was also cancelled the next day. This is very rare for the day after a storm and I don't recall this ever happening before.

The temperature was super cold and the windchill was much colder. I've never felt it this cold for any major snowstorm that memory serves me.

The strong winds created huge snow drifts and produced extensive blowing snow throughout the 6 hour heavy band mentioned above reducing visibility to next to nothing.

It took 8 days for the city to clear the sidewalks by my place, the longest ever (the second longest was 5 days so this was 3 days longer).

This was the perfect snowstorm in every way. To have a snowstorm like this again would be a dream come true!

Here's a video of that snowstorm from december 16, 2007 (what you see in the video, it was like that for 6 hours, hence the problems I mentioned above with the bus service, garbage, ect...):
