Sit down and pour a stiff brandy before reading this ...

(from NWS Binghamton, if you're not aware, location is in NY state about 50 miles north of the northeast corner of PA) ...

...ALL TIME 24 HOUR RECORD SNOWFALL SET AT BINGHAMTON NY...

A 24 HOUR RECORD SNOWFALL OCCURRED AT THE GREATER BINGHAMTON AIRPORT
FROM MARCH 14TH TO MARCH 15TH. A TOTAL OF 31.3 INCHES OF SNOW FELL
BETWEEN 3 AM ON THE 14TH TO 1 AM ON THE 15TH. THIS BREAKS THE
PREVIOUS 24 HOUR SNOWFALL RECORD OF 23 INCHES SET IN FEBRUARY 1961.

OUR SEASONAL SNOWFALL NOW STANDS AT 127.7 INCHES WHICH IS 3.6 INCHES
SHY OF THE 131.3 INCHES ALL TIME SEASONAL SNOWFALL SET IN 1993-94.

THIS IS IN STARK CONTRAST TO LAST WINTER WHERE ONLY 32 INCHES FELL
FOR ENTIRE 2015-16 SNOW SEASON. THIS WAS A RECORD LOW SNOWFALL.

NORMAL SEASONAL SNOWFALL AT THE GREATER BINGHAMTON AIRPORT IS 83.4
INCHES. RECORDS AT THE GREATER BINGHAMTON AIRPORT GO BACK TO 1951.

(note from MTC -- since they posted that, 4.0" more fell on 15th, so that seasonal record is achieved now too).

And Burlington VT also had a total close to 30"

Wow. Over two foot of snow in 24 hours. I wish there was a time lapse video of this somewhere.
