BOSTON — A year ago today, it started to get snowy around here. VERY SNOWY.
The first of our blockbustah' storms began January 26th and didn’t end until early on the 28th. The result was 2-3 feet of snow across much of central and eastern Mass and southeastern NH. Though Boston officially reported 24.6” of snow (at Logan), a short distance away in South Boston reported a whopping 31.0”! Over three feet was measured by weather spotters in Hudson, Auburn and Lunenburg – our jackpot towns.
Here are some fun facts about last year's snow to share at the water cooler today:
-24.6" snow in Boston was the #6 biggest snowstorm recorded in the city (today through the 28th)
-Before the 26th it has only snowed 5.5" in Boston (so far this year we have 10.4")
-It snow 25 of the next 32 day in Boston
-The average snow per day was 2.8" in that time
-February ended up being the SNOWIEST MONTH ever recorded in Boston
-Last winter was the SNOWIEST WINTER on record in Boston too
