Let it Snow … And Snow … And Snow

most snow in one day

The record for the most snow to fall in one day occurred on April 14, 1921 in Silver Lake, Colorado.

The storm began at 2:30 pm, and by the same time the next day, residents were buried under 6.5 feet (2 meters) of snow.

The storm did not stop after 24 hours, however. It raged for a total of 32.5 hours, and by the time it was over, 8 feet (2.5 meters) of snow, which is the record for one continuous snowfall.
