Big Snow

One hundred and twenty five years ago today, on January 28th 1887, the largest snowflake ever was seen in Ft Keough, Montana. The snowflake measured 15 inches (38 cm) by 8 inches (20cm).

The second biggest snowflake was seen eighty-four years later in Bratsk, Siberia sometime in the winter of 1971, and measured 12 inches (30 cm) by eight inches (20 cm).
