74 inches of snow in Boston in past month


(WTNH) — If you’re tired of the snow, just be glad you’re not in Boston right now. The city has gotten 74 inches in less than a month, more than Washington, Baltimore, Philadelphia, and New York combined.

There’s no place to put all of that snow as it just keeps coming down, so the city is melting it. But even though they can get rid of up to 350 tons of snow an hour, they still have their hands full.

“State plows have moved enough snow to fill Gillette Stadium 90 times,” said Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker.

The next idea is to dump the snow into Boston Harbor.

All public transit is halted for Tuesday, including the T, and schools are closed.
