This has been an unseasonably mild and snow-free winter, but it was 20 years ago this week, that the northeastern U.S. was hit by one of the most devastating winter storms ever: the Blizzard of '96.

Parts of the Tri-State were blanketed in more than two feet of snow.

Unusually warm weather and rain followed, triggering major flooding.

The storm and the flooding were blamed for more than 180 deaths, and $3 billion dollars of damage.
