Biggest snow storms of the past 20 years

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.

City crews and others like Thomas Alexander, who works for Ritzman Lawn Care, were out at 5:00 a.m. trying to clear the streets and sidewalks of the heavy overnight snowfall Dec. 24, 2009. Alexander worked to clear a path outside a business at Eight and New Hampshire streets.
