A record setting March snowstorm

The Green Bay area and Northern Wisconsin were hammered by a late-season winter storm the last two days.  Seems Old Man Winter wasn’t willing to leave despite the onset of spring the other day.  The snowfall total was 15.3 inches with light snow still falling at 5 pm.  Fox 11 had some interesting facts about this storm:

-6th biggest snow storm on record
-3rd biggest March storm
-First time 3 storms have topped 10” in a winter: Aiden 11.0”, Dana 13.9”, Francesca 15.3”
– 7th snowiest winter on record
-7th snowiest March on record

The worst part was that it was a heavy, wet snow making it very difficult to clear.
