This winter we’ve had snow and also some rain here in western Massachusetts.

According to NOAA, this winter was the wettest on record.

From December 2018 through February 2019, the total U.S. winter precipitation was 9.01 inches that was 2.22 inches above average. That made it the wettest winter on record beating the winter of 1997-1998.
