We, Missourians, have experienced our fair share of snow over the years. However, a few blizzards stand out for the sheer volume of snow they dumped across the state. One of the largest snowstorms, in the 21st century, hit much of the United States in the opening days of February 2011. It also brought some of Missouri to a standstill and created a rare natural phenomenon.
