In the past 20 years, five storms have dropped 5.6 or more inches of snow on Lawrence. With the Feb. 1, 2011 storm expected to drop 9 to 13 inches of snow on Lawrence, it would easily be the most snowfall Lawrence has seen in the last 20 years, and would also approach the top five all time.

A Lawrence police officer and a whole crew of bystanders worked to get this car out of the two- and three- foot snow drifts at 19th and Vermont. More than six inches fell Dec. 24, 2009 into Christmas morning, making it a white Christmas.
