I found this one which says 19 inches in Texas in 1979, but I don't know if it's up to date.

Everything in your answer is correct, BUT the inches. Same date, town, state, so either the weatherman at WTEN TV station in Albany NY, made a mistake, or I did. I read these Q&A very carefully so that I try not to make a mistake, but it could have happened!! His answer is (D) so if I cannot check it somewhere else, of course you will get the correct answer. Now, I am just curious what happened? sorry Capt.
