Italian Town Got More Than 8 Feet of Snow — In 18 Hours!
You think you got hit hard with snow this winter?
Capracotta, Italy got an entire season's of snow when 100.8 inches dumped down on it in 18 hours. It's believed to be a world record for most snowfall in a 24-hour stretch, currently held by Silver Lake, Colorado, which had 75.8 inches back in 1921.
Capracotta's whiteout was pretty epic. The 100 inches were more than all the flakes dumped on Boston in January and February combined.
To give an idea of just how wild the storm was, Italy's MateoWeb posted a photo on its Facebook page of man shaking a woman's hand outside her second-story window:
