January 5-12, 1880
The Big Snow of 1880 saw 64" fall at Seattle during an 8-day period.

A special thanks to Kellie Whitlock (Seattle First Baptist Church) for the above photo

News account: "Puget Sound is buried in snow to an unheard-of extent. It is known to be from four to six feet deep at Tacoma and Seattle, where business is wholly suspended by the difficulty of getting about, and travel even by boat is rendered uncertain."
