    The most snow ever recorded in a 24 hour period in the US was in Silver Lake, Colorado in 1921. A snowfall of 76 inches in just one day!




    Did you know? The world’s largest snowflake was reported to be 15 inches across and 8 inches thick! The Guinness Book of World Records states that this giant snowflake was found at Fort Keogh, Montana on January 28, 1887.

    OUCH!!!
