    Bogus Headline ‘Snowiest Winter on Record.” You refute it in your copy, to wit: “The snow that fell on Monday totaled 5.9 inches, according to the NWS Quad Cities. StormTrack 8 confirmed that this snow has made for the snowiest Meteorological winter, which runs from December 1 – February 28, since 1978-1979.” Did NOAA just start keeping records in 1980?

    I should say …. CONFUSING COPY …. it seems from reading the NWS Quad Cities page that snowfall has exceeded the record by 1/10 of an inch. So it is the snowiest ever, now the snowiest since 1978-’79.
