People up and down the East Coast were engulfed by a massive winter storm over the weekend.
For New York City it was officially the second biggest blizzard in the city's history, with 26.8 inches recorded in Central Park. Other parts of the city received more than 30 inches. And it was the biggest amount of snowfall received in a single day in New York City -- ever.
"It's an incredible amount of snow to have to move," NYC sanitation commissioner, Kathryn Garcia, said on Sunday. "Even some of the V-plows are struggling with these depths."
But as New Yorkers dug out and hiked over massive, slushy snowbanks to lug their reluctant kids to school on Monday, history shows the country's biggest city has seen this kind of weather before.
