Boston Snowfall

Here's a graph of total seasonal snowfall in Boston back to 1890. I did this in Apple's Numbers and was curious about the trend which doesn't look bad to me. We currently have 77.3" of snow which ranks as the 9th worst of all time and its only Feb 10th. By Friday we'll have smashed the record for snowiest February ever (we're 1.2" off now). At this rate I suspect we'll be in the top 3 for snowiest winters. Last year was 28th and the year before the 19th, but the year before that (starting Dec '11) was the second least snowiest with only 9.3".

Update: Tough Crowd. I think I got this right, let me know.

Please show us a histogram so that we can understand those numbers. what is the 50th, 75th, and 90th percentile snow amount? Looks like we ill know the max this winter with a few more inches to break the record!
