The Inland Northwest is bundling up after a record snowfall just days after the official start of fall.

Spokane saw nearly two inches of snow drop on Saturday, a record that has never been broken until now. Other parts of the region saw a whole lot more.

The National Weather Service (NWS) tweeted out the snow totals from Sunday, revealing that parts of Stevens, Ferry and Okanogan County are seeing quite a lot of snow, as well as parts of North Idaho. Boyds, Washington seems to be the unluckiest of the bunch, with a whopping 14 inches of snow.
