Feb. 1-2, 2011: Also known as the "Groundhog Day Blizzard," this storm dumped up to two feet of snow in parts of Chicago, shutting down the city's famed Lake Shore Drive. Record snow totals were reported in Boston and Baltimore, and Blackhawk helicopters and Humvees had to be brought in to rescue motorists stranded on closed interstates. Damages exceeded $1 billion.
