Friday Dec 9, 2016 - 12:49 PM
For the record: The first big dump in our 120 years of records came as 53.3-cm (21-inch) that fell on Groundhog Day, February 2, 1916.
The second on Valentine's Day (February 14), 1923: 50.8 cm (20 inches).
The dreaded Blizzard of '96 was dumped 65 cm (25.6 inches).
Prior to official weather record keeping, the biggest snowfalls reportedly fell on Victoria in 1880, 61 cm (24 inches); and 1887, 91 cm (36 inches).

Here are the records month-by-month:
  • Jan 13, 1971 - 29cm
  • Feb 17, 1989 - 26cm
  • Mar 03, 1960 - 21cm
