BOSTON — Boston’s miserable winter is now also its snowiest season going back to 1872. The official measurement of 108.6 inches at Logan International Airport Sunday night topped a season record of 107.9 inches set in 1995-96, according to the National Weather Service in Taunton, Mass. The final 2.9 inches came in a snowstorm that was relatively tame after a record-setting monthly snowfall of 64.9 inches in February. The worst previous single month was January 2005 when 43.3 inches fell. This official winter snowfall, measured from December through February this year, was 99.4 inches. That was the snowiest for the winter period, beating 91.5 inches in 1993-94. The season snowfall record is measured from July 1 through June 30, and takes in autumn and spring. Forecasters note snow can still mount up this year. March 1993 had 38.9 inches, and March 1916 had 33.
Congrats, you guys! We did it! Cue the duckboats! Snowiest winter ever. Kinda feel like a real championship sports team, no? This season was long. It was arduous. There were a lot of times when we just wanted to quit and head to the beach. Hell, even at the end it looked like we might not pull it off. As the snow melted away the week it seemed as though we’d fall just short of hanging the banner. But with a little luck we snuck it out. Best Boston ever at having snow fall on it. No one else can say that. Makes me happy we put in all that work.
