The Great Blizzard of 2011

History happens every day, just some days you notice it a little more than others. The Blizzard of February 2011 made history for dumping the most snow ever on Quincy and Adams County. The 18 to 22 inches of snow in this county and several places around the Tri-State area beat all other totals, from the Blizzard of 1975, back to previous record holder on Christmas Day of 1915. The 12.7 inches that fell on that day in 1915 was eclipsed by nearly 10 inches at Lock and Dam 21.

This is confirmed by The National Weather Service, and you can read all about it at the Whig's home page: Now It's Official...
