With everyone flipping out over the few inches of snow we got today and the possible impending doom of the Nor'easter that's tracking its way towards us for early next week, it only seems right to remind folks of the past March snowstorms we've endured.
On March 2, 1914, NYC was buried in 14.5 inches of snow. On March, 8 and 9 of 1941, Mother Nature dropped 33.8 inches on the Big Apple. And on March, 3 and 4 of 1960, the city was hit with 27.1 inches of the white stuff.
The biggest one-day snowfall measured in at 15.7 inches on March 8, 1941.
For those of you hoping that next week's Nor'easter fizzles out, here's a bit of good news.
No March snowstorm that has occured after the 13th of the month has made the top ten snowiest days recorded in March
But records are made to be broken.
Bundle up, friends.
