The more things change, the more they stay the same.

Nearly 17 years ago, in March of 1994, The Boston Globe used an image of then-Celtics big-man Robert Parish in a graphic illustrating that season's record snowfall totals. Parish, who stands 84.5-inches tall, was eclipsed by the season's 89.5-inch snow jackpot.

Now, The Boston Globe and have come up with a graphic using an image of current Celtics star Shaquille O'Neal (85-inches tall) compared to the 60.3 inches of snow the region had received already (and it's only late January).

Will the 2010-2011 season's snowfall surpass Shaq's height? Will it break the record of 102.8 inches that fell in 1995-1996? Stay tuned.
