Leaving two feet of snow (or more) in its wake, the blizzard of 2010 was named “Snowmageddon.”
 


 

Even though the storm hit on a weekend, most schools were unable to reopen by Monday.
 


 

Anyone with a snowblower was treated like a god.
 


 

Pittsburgh got off relatively easy. Parts of western Maryland and northern West Virginia saw snow totals in excess of three feet. 
 


 

While there is snow in the forecast starting tonight, forecasters insist history won't repeat itself … this time.
