Below are a few fun facts that will make you appreciate the few measly inches that we typically get each winter in the Cincinnati area:

  1. In the United States, the most snow ever recorded in a 24 hour period happened in 1921 at Silver Lake, Colorado. They were hit with 76 inches in one day!
  2. According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the largest snowflake on record was found in Montana, in 1887, and was said to be 15 inches long and 8 inches thick!
  3. The true conditions of a blizzard are when the winds reach at least 35 MPH and the visibility is so poor that you cannot see for ¼ mile. The storm must also last at least 3 hours to be considered a blizzard.
  4. The United States averages 105 snow storms per year.
  5. The World Record for accumulated snowfall in one winter season is held by Mount Baker ski area in Washington State. Mount Baker received 1,140 inches in the winter of 1998/1999.
