Grand Rapids breaks century-old snowfall record

Snowiest November on record. Not just for the date, mind you, but for the entire month. And more snow is on the way.


20 Nov 2014 – Snowfall totals for Grand Rapids, Michigan, so far this month – 28.4 inches (72 cm) as of 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 20 – mak it the snowiest November on record, according to the National Weather Service. The previous record of 28.2 inches was set 119 years ago, in 1895.

With 23.5 inches of  snow since Monday, this week’s stormranks fifth among the top-10 all-time snowfall totals in a four-day span. A stretch at the end of December in 2001 holds the top spot with 32.4 inches.

To add to the misery, more snow is on the way
