New Years Day

New Years Day, photo by hampsters.

The Detroit News reported that the 16″ snowfall on January was the biggest ever for a New Year’s Day and the fourth-biggest snowfall in southern Michigan history. The biggest southern Michigan snowfall ever was 24.5 inches on April 6, 1886*. Many folks managed to avoid the downsides of power outages and poor driving conditions and got out and enjoyed the conditions.

You can view a slideshow of photos from the storm or just view the thumbnails.

* I searched and searched for the state record – if anyone knows, please post in the comments!
