With spring’s arrival today, Peterborough has recorded a record winter for snowfall – 304 centimetres. Although there are some gaps in local records, the snowiest winter previously was 302.7 cm in 1911-12. According to Dave Phillips of Environment Canada, 10 percent of the annual snowfall comes after the first day of spring, so there is more on the way.
