Naht again! Another massive blizzard buries Boston

In what's becoming a weekly, expletive-inducing experience for millions of New Englanders, a blizzard buried parts of the northeast Sunday, with high wind gusts and heavy snow blanketing the region from Connecticut to Maine.

There was even some thundersnow.

"A little bit of deja vu all over again," Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker said.

You can say that again. In Boston, close to a foot of snow fell on top of the 7-plus feet that's fallen so far this winter — making February the snowiest month in the city since record-keeping started in 1872.

"It's official," the National Weather Service tweeted early Sunday. "Boston has reached its snowiest month on record with 58.5 total inches. The old record was 43.3 in January 2005."


And that was before Sunday's snowfall totals.


The city hit another milestone Sunday, too: third snowiest winter on record, with 95.7 inches so far, according to the National Weather Service.


That was evident walking around downtown Boston Sunday.


"It's biblical," Frank Libby, a Boston attorney, told the Associated Press. "I think we're in uncharted territory. People just don't know how to deal with the logistics of it."


And once again, the snowplows were out in full force.


Even the National Weather Service's Massachusetts headquarters is getting buried.


Satellite footage released by NASA Sunday shows just how massive the latest blizzard is.


By midafternoon Sunday, York Beach, Maine, recorded the highest snowfall total (24 inches), while Nantucket recorded the heaviest wind gust (62 mph), according to the Weather Channel.
