Boston has officially had its snowiest winter on record — getting 108.6 inches of snow.
The previous record was 107.6 inches, set in 1995 to 1996. The city just surpassed the old record with another 2.9 inches of snow on Sunday night. Surviving the Red Line has a new meaning.

This was an incredibly brutal winter for Boston. The city saw four blizzards in the three weeks between January 27 and February 15. Parking, among other things, became a nightmare. The mayor had to ask people to stop jumping out of windows into piles of snow as part of the #BostonBlizzardChallenge.
The official snowfall measured between December and February was 99.4 inches, WBUR reported. It's possible that the total snowfall count for the season, which is measured from July 1 through June 30, could still go up.
Here's a quick look back at what residents had to deal with this winter:
