Feb. 16-17 is the anniversary of the "Great Blizzard of 2003." The storm
dropped heavy snow from the Midwest to the Eastern Seaboard. Excessive snowfall
(2 to 3 feet) occurred from the nation's capital to New England. Garrett
County, Md., reported the most snow, 44 inches!
In Baltimore, the huge accumulation of snow caused the roof of the B&O Railroad
Museum to collapse causing extensive damage to the exhibits.
To the south, there was severe icing. From northern Georgia to southern
Virginia, the massive accumulation of ice knocked down trees and power lines,
and in many communities power was not restored for days.
