According to the Guinness Book of World Records, on this date in 1887 the largest snowflake ever observed fell in Fort Keogh, Montana. Supposedly this snowflake was 15 inches wide and 8 inches thick! Not surprisingly there aren’t any photographs of this giant snowflake, so basically we’re just taking the word of the rancher who claims he found this monster. How big CAN snowflakes get, and was this reported sighting credible? Tune in today to find out.
Today is also the anniversary of the Knickerbocker Storm.
