"Relatively" being the operative term, as 22.4" (Philly's 4th biggest) isn't too shabby.

Lol...didnt realize it was that much. Thought it was in the 15-18 range. So yea, 22" works. I haven't seen that much in one event in the 5 years here in VT.

I went down to western Chester County for that one, hours and hours of 2" per hour rates.  I think Philly itself sucked some exhaust from those suburb bands and ended up relatively screwed.

Great pictures!  I live on Chester county and my area definitely hit the jackpot on that storm.  Further south and west along the MD border I'm pretty sure there were totals closing in on 40".

I've seen 2 such >22" events in 22 winters here, 12/03 and 2/09, and have to go back to 1984 (in Fort Kent) to find another one.  Unless you're at Stowe or Jay Peak, or in prime LES country, that kind of dump isn't coming every winter.  :o

My #2 all time favorite. An event that lasted Sunday afternoon until almost midnight on Tuesday. Forecast was a bust and we still got about 12-18 statewide.

I remember watching NBC30 while in VT when watches just went up. I believe Bob Maxon had 24-36" in the NW hills, 18-24" for central CT and 12-18" for southern and SE CT.

I also remember Paul Kocin talking about this is likely going to be the biggest storm in over 50 years (prob a ref. to the blizzard 1947).

This was a huge bust for the cities, Central Park only received 3.5" and Boston received 9.8". Both those cities i believe were in the 1-2 foot range maybe 3 feet. This was a huge interior event with southern NH, VT and NY getting up to 3 feet.

My #1 all time coming soon...

One of the cleaner, esthetically speaking, looking maps I've made.

One of the all time greats in interior MA. Had around 27” in ORH but officially I think the airport reported 22”...but that was during their ASOS outage snow disaster years...their final report came like 12 hours before the snow ended. Lol. 

Despite that, it was actually a mild underperformer if that’s possible. Mets were going 3 feet plus here. Still, can’t complain about a storm that breaks 2 feet.

That event may be Methuen's #1....Feb 1969 was more, but longer duration.

Worst storm ever. One of several awful busts that month. No way I got close to 5". More like 2.5 or 3 that washed away while Ray was doing naked cartwheels in 30" of pow. May it live in infamy with Boxing Day.

That was up there with 4-1-97 for me...absolutely, positively #epic.

How good was the winter of 1957-58 for SNE? According to my dad, the snowstorm that happened on his birthday (3/14/58) knocked out the power to Richardson House.

The 27th anniversary of the Superstorm of 1993 is fast approaching. How much did everyone get? Out on ACK 2" was reported, but I could've sworn we had more. Maybe that was from the storm that hit SNE on the 10-11th?
