How Did Feb. 1, 2011 Kansas City Blizzard Stack-Up Historically?



With yesterday's snow "officially" measured at K.C. I. Airport at 8.9-inches- it wasn't even in the Top 10 biggest snows in 24 hours.



The Top 10 Kansas City 24-Hour Snowfalls are:


No. 1     - 1912  March 23     - 20.5-inches
No. 2     - 1930  January 8      - 12.8-inches
No. 3T   - 1900  February 27   - 11.8-inches
No. 3T   - 1962  January 18    - 11.8-inches
No. 5T   - 1993  February 25   - 10.5-inches

No. 5T   - 1958  January 25    - 10.5-inches

No. 7     - 1915  March 4        - 10.4-inches
No. 8     - 1962  January 5      - 10.1-inches
No. 9     - 1987  December 14 - 9.7-inches

No. 10T - 1918  December 24 - 9.5-inches
No. 10T - 1912  February 25   - 9.5-inches




Here in south Kansas City about 25 miles southeast of K.C.I.- we received an average of 10-inches- but no idea where that would stand historically for a snowfall in THIS area.
 
 
 
Needless to say- it was deep and inconvenient and we're ready for Meteorological Spring on March 1.....

Between 7 and 10 inches at Casa Observer...

Pretty day today, although quite cold. Reminded me of Vermont, with the snow and blue blue sky; the squeak of snow under the feet...

Ready for Spring now...

Being a Vermonter should make you used to this winter! HaHa
