The "ThunderSnow" Storm of February 1983 was memorable. I had moved here from Wisconsin just the summer before. This was not a great amount of snow, but the city was paralyzed for days. Cars were simply abandoned in the travel lanes of Independence Ave SE on Cap Hill. Crews could only open the street by shoveling to a car, towing away, and shoveling to the next car. Mayor Marion Barry was out of town i believe at a superbowl game and didn't come back on schedule. http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/capital-weather-gang/post/the-megalopolitan-blizzard-of-february-10-12-1983/2013/02/12/be05ae32-73a9-11e2-aa12-e6cf1d31106b_blog.html
