As of Thursday morning this is the second snowiest winter ever recorded for Grand Rapids. The airport officially logged 107.8”. Here’s the list of the top ten snowiest winter seasons:

1. 1951/1952 132”
2. 2013/2014 107.8”
3. 2007/2008 107”
4. 2001/2002 105.3”
5. 2008/2009 104.9”
6. 1958/1959 104.7”
7. 1964/1965 101.4”
8. 1970/1971 101”
9. 1996/1997 98.4”
10. 2000/2001 98.1”

The official snow season is from July 1 to June 30 of the following year. We’ve certainly had a snowy decade. Five of the top ten snowiest have been in the last ten years.

Reaching the top spot of 132” isn’t impossible, but not likely.

In addition to that, without any warm air to melt the snow, the depth of snow sitting on the ground has been above 15 inches for more than a month.
