I only have one word to say about this storm: WOW. There were hundreds of thousands of power outages around the area and area highways were closed to public traffic. Winds are still howling here, I officially measured 18.8 inches of snow (average because of snow drifts). Every school in our coverage are closed and many driveways still haven’t been plowed yet. After hearing a few stories about people getting stuck and losing power for the whole night, I have concluded that this storm will be remembered for many years to come.
Here are the top 10 totals from around the area:
1. East Nanmeal in Chester Co. – 26.8 inches
2. South Coventry in Chester Co. – 26.1″
3. Willistown in Chester Co. – 24.0″
4. Eagleville in Montgomery Co. – 23.0″
5. Montgomeryville in Montgomery Co. – 22.4″
6. Abington in Montgomery Co. – 22.3″
7. Trappe in Mont Co. – 22.0″
8. Ridley Park in Delaware Co. – 21.5″
9. Perkasie in Bucks Co. – 21.0″
10. Sellersville in Bucks Co. 21.0″
Note that the top total in NJ was Ewing in Mercer County with 18.7 inches of snow.
Also note that Philadelphia reached a snowfall record of 72.1, beating their old snowfall by 7 inches.
