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.

Thursday night's six-plus inches of snow made things on Christmas Day, December 25, 2009 a mess for many like Roberto Calmano, of Hialeah, Fla. Calmano was trapped at the Airport Motel on U.S highway 24-40 around 10:00 a.m. as he was trying to free his car.
