"...more than 10 days of icy weather that culminated in a massive snowfall Saturday and Sunday. Snow measured in downtown Portland approached 13 inches Monday afternoon, rivaling a storm in 1980 that dumped 16inches on the city, according to the National Weather Service.
Portland's biggest snowfalls in history? Thirty-two inches in 1893, 28 inches in 1916 and 22inches in 1884.
The latest storm may rank among the top 10 for the area since the state started keeping records in 1880."
