It’s official, the past 7 days of snow accumulation totaling 34.2 inches through Monday afternoon in Boston set a record for the most in one week. The quick succession of snowstorms is responsible for the record accumulations. Is it more than the “big one” in 1978? Well, there were 2 storms then that left 48.5 inches, but they were about 2 weeks apart.
