  1. Hi Ryan,

    Great post. I think you need to update this. The Jan 12 storm was in 2011 not 2010, 16 inches fell in Bridgeport . I also think you shoulf include the recent storm of Jan 26-27 2011 , 13.0 inches of snow fell in Bridgeport . I also know that Bridgeport had a record snowy January 41.8 inches of snow fell during January 2011. I also know that Bridgeport had a record snow depth of 26 inches around Jan 27 2011

    I was wondering what was the snowfall from the early Jan 1996 Blizzard . I do not see that one listed here

    Thanks, Mark
