Dig out day

It was a record-setting storm that hit Northern and Central Vermont yesterday. The 24.3 inches that fell made it the 5th largest storm on record in Burlington, The Burlington Free Press reports. The over two feet of new snow vaulted the winter of 2010-11 into the third spot of snowiest winters on record with 122.8 inches of snow so far. We are still looking up at the 132.0 inches from the winter 1886-87 (second most all-time) and the 145.4 inches from 1970-71 (the snowiest winter on record). Check back here tomorrow for more info about this storm and the aftermath.
