What was perhaps the greatest snow in New England history commenced on this

feet of snow was reported farther to the north, and drifts covered many one
story homes. (David Ludlum)

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
