So we're 1/10 of an inch short of 100 inches of snow this year in Boston and about 8" short of the record. Here's my new favorite graph of recent winters.

Starting the Y axis 60" brings out some detail. Since 1992 we've had 9 winters with more than 60" of snow, six of them with more than 80 inches. To count 9 winters with at least 60" prior to that you have to go back to 1920, and five of them had less than 65". That's a 23 year span vs a 72 year span.
