...1717...
What was perhaps the greatest snow in New England history commenced on this
date. During a ten day period a series of four snowstorms dumped three feet
of snow upon Boston, and the city was snowbound for two weeks. Up to six
feet of snow was reported farther to the north, and drifts covered many one
story homes. (David Ludlum)
...1969...
A record snowstorm in Maine came to an end. Two to four feet of snow buried
southern and central Maine, with a state record of 57 inches reported at
West Forks. Drifts covered many single story homes, and the weight of the
snow collapsed many roofs. Two to four feet of snow also buried
northeastern Vermont and northeastern Massachusetts. In New Hampshire,
Mount Washington NH reported 97.8 inches of snow, a record storm total for
New England. (24th-28th) (David Ludlum) (The Weather Channel)
...1987...
A storm spread heavy snow into the Central High Plains Region, and produced
severe thunderstorms in the Southern Plains. Snowfall totals in western
Nebraska ranged up to 19 inches at Sydney. Severe thunderstorms in Oklahoma
produced baseball size hail at Stringtown and Atoka. A storm in the eastern
U.S. produced heavy rain over the Carolinas and heavy snow in the southern
Appalachians and piedmont region. Five inches of rain left four feet of
water in the streets of Greenville SC. Snowfall totals in southwestern
Virginia ranged up to 20 inches. (The National Weather Summary) (Storm
Data)
...1988...
Thunderstorms along a cold front produced heavy rain in southern
California, with up to 2.52 inches reported in Ventura County. Strong winds
accompanying the rain gusted to 55 mph in the Tehachapi Mountains. Rapid
City SD established a February record with an afternoon high of 75 degrees.
(The National Weather Summary) (Storm Data)

A winter storm produced heavy snow in southeastern Colorado, with 12 inches
reported at Lamar. The same storm produced severe thunderstorms over the
Southern High Plains, with wind gusts to 93 mph reported at the White Sands
Missile Range in New Mexico. Low pressure brought high winds to the Prince
William Sound area of Alaska. Big River Lakes reported wind gusts to 92
mph. (The National Weather Summary) (Storm Data)
