What Blizzard do you remember?

Apparently there was a Blizzard of 1978 (I read in another post) that was before my time, and the time of some of us in this group.

Do you remember a Blizzard during your childhood? Which one?

 I was alive, but I do not remember it. For the love of God, I have heard about it, though. :/ There was a storm in 2000 that, literally, buried my S-10. The only thing you could see was the tip of my antenna. However, I live in Maine. A storm has to be really huge to be memorable. Every storm was a bit memorable in 2000, actually...lol

I was way to young to remember the Blizzard of 78. I never even heard of it. I know there was a big blizzard up here in 77. My parents still talk about it til this day.  Apparently, that is when I was concieved. LOL.  I remember that their was a big storm in, I think 88. I remember the snow was up to my waist.  I also recall one in 93, 96, and 2000. The 2000 storm was really bad. Parts of the NYS Thruway were shutdown, and people were trapped in their vehicles for hours. The thruway looked like a parking lot, as many people abandoned their cars and walked to nearby hotels, and buisness to seek shelter. My husband and father both had to sleep at work, because the roads were impassable and there were driving bans all over the place. Lucky for me the area I lived and worked was not hit by the storm (it just missed us). Also we had a big surprise ice storm here in October of 2006.  People were without power for up to 2 weeks in some areas, and it took about 3 weeks for work crews to clear the huge piles of fallen trees and branches.  Hundreds of trees were lost during the storm, and their are still alot of areas where the trees haven't been replace due to the lack of funds for the replanting projects.
