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

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)
