The National Weather Service was doing some thinking, and they decided that last week's blizzard wasn't as bad as everyone thought, and also that "1979 was messed up." So they revised the '79 and '11 snow totals and last week's blizzard dropped to fourth worst. But then they talked with some local meteorologists, who all basically said, "No way, and in fact you counted wrong." So a couple hours later, this year's blizzard was third again and everyone was happy.
