The Big One began two years ago today
The great President's Day Weekend Storm of 2003 was well underway on this date two years ago. Before it was over, the four-day event produced 28.2 inches of snow at the airport - the greatest accumulation on record in Baltimore. That February ended with 40.5 inches of snow, the snowiest February on record here, and the winter concluded with 58.1 inches, the second-snowiest ever after the 62.5 inches that fell in 1995-96. (By comparison, this winter has generated just 7.6 inches of snow at BWI.)
Here is a list of the region's worst snowstorms.
Here is a map of the official accumulations.
