A snowstorm on the weekend of Jan. 7-8, 2016, set Tri-State records for largest single snowfall (14.2 inches at the airport) and most snow in a 24-hour period (12.8 inches). The worst of it – between 8 p.m. Saturday and 8 p.m. Sunday – effectively paralyzed the region, shutting down traffic, closing churches and malls, and trapping people in their homes. To make matters worse, a deep freeze Sunday night into Monday morning brought single-digit temperatures and high winds that produced wind chills of minus-30 to minus-40.
