With 22.4 inches falling during the storm, it may take a while for Philadelphians to shovel their way out.
But back in December 2009, the city had 23.2 inches of snow to deal with, ranking as the third largest snowfall.
A few months later, in February 2010, 28.5 inches of snow fell in the city.
But nothing has topped the 30.7 inches that fell during the Blizzard of 1996.
The Blizzard of 2016 affected travel on the roads, tracks and in the sky.
