It's funny, a "flashback" pic popped up on my Facebook today about this storm.  It was me pushing my then 3 year old son on a sled.  I thought about this thread when I saw it.  I think I got 7 or 8" where I lived in Piscataway NJ (northern Middlesex Co).  I remember being a little pissed since all around me did a bit better, as evidenced by the map Parsley posted.
