Grand Rapids actually broke a snowfall record for February first. The old record for the date was set in 2011 with 6.1″. At last check GR tallied more than eight inches. Places like Grandville received 10 inches, Caledonia nine inches, East Grand Rapids eight inches, and Lansing about six inches.
Zeeland picked up eight inches, Muskegon 4.1″, and Fremont five inches. These are NOT final totals, so the numbers will increase a bit overnight. Grand Rapids season snowfall totals are in the 62″-63″ range. We’re now running about 12″ above normal for this time of year!
