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

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

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

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)
