The Blizzard of 2013 needs another superlative. How’s “The Great Blizzard of 2013″ sound?
The swath of snow totals exceeding 30″ is virtually unrivaled in the last 100 years. The snow was not just a fluff bomb of 20:1 or 25:1 powder this was a legit snow. Liquid equivalents likely exceeded 3″ on the shoreline – if not 4”! For many areas in the state you need to go back to 1888 to find more impressive snow totals.
Much more will be written about the Great Blizzard of 2013 in coming days. I have all sorts of science to geek out about and all sorts of historical comparisons to make.
