Boston's Snowstorm Ranked At #11

The National Weather Service reports that Logan Airport received 17.5 inches of snow over the course of yesterday's storm. That means that the snowstorm is now ranked at #11 on the list of top Boston snowfalls, displacing the storm of February 5, 1920, which measured 17.3 inches.

(Of course, depending on how you count it, you might consider yesterday's storm as #12, as we're still dealing with a tie at #10. The storms of January 7-8, 1996 and December 20-22, 1975 both came in at 18.2 inches.)
