It's official: we broke the season snowfall record on Tuesday. But not without a weather-reporting hiccup first.

It was just a tenth of an inch -- maybe even a bit more -- but some light snow at Toledo Express Airport between 9 and 10 p.m. Tonight officially made this winter the snowiest in Toledo's recorded history. Combined with 0.4 inch that fell early today, Toledo reached 73.2 inches for the season, beating the 73.1-inch record from 1977-78. More light snow was expected in the region before sunrise, and another significant snowstorm is possible this weekend, forecasters said.
However, as of late Tuesday and early morning today, the official snow record has gone missing. The Blade's David Patch has more on the sticky situation in his Road Warrior Blog: "Toledo's Tuesday snowfall is "missing," and the record is in limbo."
