Yet more snow fell on Boston yesterday, pushing this winter's total to a record 108.6 inches and sparking some tongue-in-cheek "celebrations" of the milestone. "We are once again the indisputable champions. Of being snowed on," crows the Boston Globe. The 2.9 inches that fell yesterday make this winter snowier than the one of 1995-1996, which had been the snowiest since records began in 1872, USA Today reports. The snow didn't halt yesterday's St. Patrick's Day parade, where Mayor Marty Walsh announced that a yeti would step in as interim mayor, reports the Los Angeles Times, which notes that there are much snowier places than Boston in the US, including Copenhagen, NY, which has had more than 20 feet of snow this winter.
