Well, if we have to go through it, at least we are breaking records in the process, right? That's what I'm telling myself to stay more optimistic during this brutal winter. We've had nearly 11 inches of snow already this month. With a huge snowstorm heading our way, we are very likely to break the monthly record this week! And that's with more than half of the month left to go... Remind me, why do I live here again?

According to the National Weather Service, the record snowfall for the month of February was set in 2007 when we hit 20 inches. They are predicting 3-7 inches tonight, and an additional 4 inches tomorrow. If we get as much snow as they're predicting, we will easily beat the record, or at the very least break the top 10 - which hasn't happened since 2014.
