Record snowstorm shuts down Spokane


The most snow - ever! – in a 24-hour period
______________________________




18 Dec 08 - The winter storm that paralyzed Spokane set a record for the amount of snow dumped in a 24-hour period, the National Weather Service said Thursday.

Some 17 inches of snow was recorded at Spokane International Airport, 4 inches more than the record 13 inches set in 1984. Records have been kept since 1881.

More than 3 additional inches of snow had fallen on the city since 4 a.m., the weather service said, driving the total to more than 20 inches.

Last year the region endured one of the snowiest winters in its history.
