snow and ice on the branches
snow and ice glisten on branches as Boston breaks the all time snowfall record

Well, we did it. A little under 3 inches of snow (following freezing rain) Sunday night gave Boston a total all time record of 108.6 inches of snow this winter (thus far), beating the old record by an inch. Of course most of this snow came in a three week period and we shattered the records for most snow in a month, most snow in February, etc. But it’s nice to also take the gold in snowiest year EVER. #iPhoneography

And here’s a Boston Globe graph (using, among other things, a Duck Boat and a Boston Terrier) on this, our record-breaking year of SNOW:

More snow for Boston! The second significant snowfall in this young month of March (on top of 100+ inches of snow for Boston thus far this winter).  A quick shot of the Massachusetts State House, aka the “new State House” (built 1795-1798, with many subsequent additions), while walking home in surprisingly heavy snow last night (after being stuck late at work).   This turned out pretty well for a nighttime iPhone shot.  #iPhoneography #neverendingwinter
