Arriving only hours after the completion of the 2014 Super Bowl, the first round of snow barreled through the Northeast I-95 corridor, burying areas from Washington, D.C., to New York City and Boston on Monday, Feb. 3, 2014.
As fans tried to return home from the game, thousands of flights were canceled or delayed out of most of the Northeast's major airport hubs, including Philadelphia International and Newark International airports.
Quick on the storm's heels, another snowstorm unleashed a fury of ice and snow on more than 100 million people spanning from Colorado to Maine Tuesday through Wednesday, Feb. 4 and 5, 2014.
Multiple states declared states of emergency in the wake of the storm, as more than ten states were inundated under a foot of snow.
On the national scale more than 3,270 flights were cancelled due to the inclement weather and after the storm subsided more than half of a million were left without power.
