2. I am surprised 1967 wasn't in the rankings.
What stands out about '67 was seeing my dad and neighbors pull sleds out to 11 mile road to pick up groceries from cars because the sub was not passable. The funny part was that a couple sisters and mom required feminine hygiene products, so my dad took a lot of ribbing from neighbors due to those large boxes with the flowers on them sitting on the sled with bags of groceries. .

The '74 storm stands out because of the mega-ton Buick wagon that my brother got stuck in the ditch at the end of our driveway. The wrecker couldn't get it out, IIRC.

Maybe '67 was snowfall over a period of days. If anyone has a better memory of it, please fill me in.
