(WVVA) -

Monday, March 12 marks the 25th anniversary of a famous winter storm that dumped between two to three feet of snow in the Two Virginias.

Snow began falling on the morning of Saturday, March 12, 1993, and didn't stop until several feet covered roadways; burying cars in process. 

About 24 inches of snow was recorded in Bluefield, 30 inches in Beckley and around 44 inches at Snowshoe -- one of the highest totals in the U.S.

The '93 Superstorm affected approximately 40 percent of the nation, or about 100 million people in 26 states. The storm spawned everything from storm surges to tornadoes, and of course, crippling amounts of snow.
