Anyway, in February of 1899, Mother Nature dumped a ton of snow on the City of Cape May. The storm, which lasted from February 11 - 14 gave Cape May 34 inches of snow - the most snow ever to fall in one place in New Jersey from one storm.  That information is from New Jersey State Climatologist David Robinson, as published on
