Measuring snow in New England

Large Dunkin' iced coffee in the snow

Our own Cybah reports the area in front of Chelsea City Hall got one large Dunkin' iced-coffee cup's worth of snow this morning.

In Jamaica Plain, Jodi Solomon used an older method: A ruler.

In Milton, Jennifer Ray used the same.

In Franklin, WHDH's Kimberly Bookman used a variety of scales, including an ice scraper, an umbrella, a plunger, a bottle of some sort of pinkish wine and, of course, a potato masher:

In Copley Square, WHDH's Juliana Mazza interviewed a New England winter-shorts bro, which, OK, has nothing to do with measurements, but is just a classic New England thing, no?

Thanks Adam.

I was on my way to the Silver Line (to get my hairs did) and saw the fresh snow there in front of City Hall. All I had was my coffee and voila, a new unit of snow measure for New Englanders is born.

What's funny is the cup is re-used and filled with iced coffee i made at home and not DD. And yeah I like creamy coffee.
