Boston is measuring its snowfall compared to height of athletes
Boston has gotten a lot of snow this winter season, including 68.2 inches of snow in the past 30 days.
This winter, a TV station in Boston has found a new way to measure the total amount of snowfall.
On Monday, WCVB-TV in Boston tweeted out a graphic showing the snow total in terms of the height of Boston area athletes. As of Monday morning, the snow had hit Boston Red Sox DH David Ortiz's height of 76 inches.
Weather.com calls for Boston to get more snow in the next two days, so it looks like Boston Celtics center Kelly Olynyk (84 inches) may be within reach.
The Boston Globe's front page on Tuesday announced the city has almost overtake Patrice Bergeron, and left the diminutive Dustin Pedroia under a mountain of snow
