Its challenging to determine which snow storm was the absolute worst in human history, but here are a few that have been particularly damaging.
Lunafish’s answers are very good, but one storm that I think is worth mentioning is the Great Blizzard of 1888. One of the biggest “Nor’easters” in history, the onslaught that raked the US northeast beginning on March 12, 1888 dumped 58 inches of snow in some areas and killed 400 people. Because the snow shut down fire stations, fires swept through cities in the aftermath of the storm, causing $25 million in damage. In 2008 dollars the 1888 storm cost $1.2 billion, certainly comparable with the storms Lunafish mentioned.
