It’s official – we broke the record

After the light snow we got last night, it seems that Boston has officially broken the record for most snowfall in a single season.  Our current snow total is now 108.6 inches, beating the old record of 107.6 inches from the winter of 1995-1996.  Here in Boston, they began keeping records of snowfall in 1872.

Thankfully a lot of snow melted in the last couple of weeks, so the new snow hasn’t really done a whole lot to make anything worse.  But as the snow melts, it is revealing all the garbage and other stuff that got buried in the massive piles.

Ah, spring.
