There's snow, there's lots of snow and then there's what happened to Boston.
The city has plowed through historical records, with more than 60 inches of snow in the last 20 days.
But it's not done yet-some Boston suburbs had another 20 inches or more Sunday into Monday, and forecasters were warning more could be in store for Thursday.
Here are a few scenes from the historic winter.

Boston has received 61.6 " of snow in the last 30 days, breaking a record that dates to the 1970s. This photo shows a stop sign at a Home Depot in Danvers, MA, that was nearly buried by snow.
That milestone was as of 7 a.m. ET Monday, and with hours more snow to go, the record is sure to climb.
Power outages were minimal with the latest storm, except for one train whose third rail froze -- trapping people on board between stations for three hours before they could be recovered.
Massachusetts' newly elected governor, Charlie Baker, said the state has already moved enough snow to fill the Patriots' Gillette Stadium 90 times over.
He cautioned people to clear the roofs of their houses and any fire hydrants on their streets as well.
Some were able to get to work, one way or another, but state offices were closed for non-essential personnel, and Boston declared two snow days for schools.
Business has been spectacular for plowing companies during these storms. One firm told CNBC it has done about $400,000 in business in just the last four weeks, enough to invest in new equipment for which it'd otherwise take three years to save.
As of midday Monday the official Boston snow total for the winter of 2014-2015 was 73.9 ". The National Weather Service said that made it #10 on a list of the city's snowiest all-time winters.
With all of that snow, Massachusetts officials warned homeowners to clear their roofs or run the risk of collapse.
Already on Monday, authorities responded to at least two incidents were roofs or parts of whole buildings collapsed under the weight of feet of icy snow.
Boston residents shoveled their roofs as well as their driveways to prevent a collapse.
Residents said one of the hottest items in town is the "snow rake" (basically an inverted shovel with a long handle) to clear the snow off of the roof. The rakes are so popular, HomeDepot.com was sold out of both the $39.97 and $46.97 versions of their 17-foot snow roof rakes several days after Monday's storm.
There were also several ads on Boston Craigslist for roof-shoveling services.
