We’re number 8! We’re number 8!February 10th, 2013 at 10:30 am by petemangione under Tony's Pinpoint Weather Blog
You have heard the term “historic storm” a lot over the past few days. The blizzard of 2013 certainly was historic and will be remembered for a long time. For you snow geeks (like me), below is a graphic of how the snow numbers break down at TF Green airport. We made #8 of all time!
Obviously, this TF Green number is much less then what most of us picked up. However, that’s where the records are officially kept and there is not much we can do about it. Ha ha. I laugh because there are constant complaints that the airport is “stingy” with their snow measurements. I did not go out there and measure it myself so I will go by their word on this matter. I measured 16.0 inches here at the station in East Providence so the TF Green number doesn’t seem that unrealistic.
Stay safe and hopefully the power comes back on soon for those of you still stuck without power. -Pete Mangione
