I put together a list of snowfall totals as I have them this morning. Scroll down as this is no particular order. This has been a top 10 storm for many people and the biggest snowstorm ever in terms of snow totals for others. Portland, ME set a new all-time snow total record. While we did have blizzard warnings in effect for much of the storm as a point of definition we never officially had a blizzard. We had blizzard conditions, but they didn't last long enough for the storm to qualify as a blizzard. According to the definition, we would have needed to have 35 mile per hour wind, combined with one-quarter mile visibility (or less) and it had to have lasted for 3 hours or longer. That did not occur in this storm, so imagine if this had been a blizzard!

I'd love to learn about your total snowfall amounts and see your pictures. You can send them to me on Twitter at @growingwisdom enjoy the storm.
