20.1 inches here...remember that storm like it was yesterday. After the 1988-1992 snow drought here, we got crushed in the December 1992 storm only to get crushed again 3 months later, almost to the day. We never went to rain...but I think did get some sleet at the very end, but most of the precip had already fallen.

This map is actually incorrect for RIC.

The map should display 4" as the official total. The map that ETaunton posted is a better map.
