Mike Seidel Snowfall total through 7 PM at Logan Airport was 23.3″ making it at least the 2nd snowiest calendar day on record. The storm total stands at 23.5″ which ranks #7 in 2-day storms. The final totals/rankings after midnight as it was still snowing at 8 PM.
Eric Fisher A general idea of what’s left of the storm from 4p until things finish later this evening. Big band keeps on rolling inside 128. How often do we say inside 128 instead of outside 128??
