Record-Setting Snow Buries Northeast

i actually remember the 1947 snow, as a kid

the snow came all the way up to here

every other storm has been a disappointment since

i don't know that it's headline material, though. it wasn't at the time, either. it's just snow. people shovel, trucks plow, it gets cleared.

The National Weather Service said 26.9 inches of snow had fallen in Central Park, the most for a single storm since record-keeping started in 1869. The old record was 26.4 inches in December 1947.
