It’s a common adage: “There was so much more snow when I was a kid.” It feels like every Christmas was white and snowball fights were abundant – but was it really the case?
KDKA meteorologist Ray Petelin decided to see for himself. Looking back at each decade since the 1900s, it turns out the 2010s were one of the snowiest for Pittsburgh with 493.7 inches of snowfall. Actually, it was the second snowiest on record, bested only by the 1960s (541.1 inches).
So, you ’60s kids are right. For most everyone else – it’s all a flurried figment of your imagination.
