Is This a Record-Breaking Snow Season? Check Out These Stats.

This year’s 2010-2011 Snow Season seems like it’s been hard on us. But really, we’ve just hit 60″ of snow– far below the record brought by the 1995-1996 snow season of 107″.

Yet, we’re still 20″ above normal for Boston snow totals (the average being around 48″).

January 2011 does rank at the 3rd snowiest January (1st being 2005 and 2nd being 1996).

And still, I don’t know if you’ve heard, but we potentially have another whopper coming Tuesday & Wednesday. As a graduate student, I view storms as snow days, but otherwise, I have to admit. This is getting a little exhausting.

Here are some stats on snow totals below:
