100″ of snow in only 18 hours!

A long standing snowfall record (87 inches in 24 hours in Silver Lake Colorado… a record that has stood since 1921) was smashed this weekend. Capracotta, in the Italian province of Isernia, set the new world one-day snowfall record with 256 cm (8.34 feet or 100.08 inches) of snow in about 18 hours last Thursday (March 5, 2015.) Another nearby community, Pescocostanzo, also broke the old record with an nearly as impressive 240 cm (7.84 feet or 94.08 inches.)
