Snow Comparison

We have really made up for lost snow this winter season! What started out hum-drum for snowmobilers, plowers, and sledders, has turned exciting! For those of you who don’t like the snow, don’t worry because we’re headed into March and our snowstorms will turn into rainstorms more often than not.

Capture3Let’s take a look at February’s snowfall. Believe it or not, we’re now in the top-five snowiest Februaries of all time!  We’ve even surpassed February 2011, the month with our big “Groundhog’s Day Blizzard!”  That month saw 20.2 inches (most of that coming with that memorable snowstorm. With the month of February winding down, it doesn’t look like we’ll make it to the top spot, but our nickel-and-dime snow coming tonight and Thursday could pull us into the #4 spot!

Capture2With December and January being lackluster with respect to snow, you wouldn’t think that we’re so close to normal for the winter season! We just need another 4 inches of snowfall to actually go into the surplus category! March usually brings us 5 1/2 inches of snow with April just under an inch. So, if we remain at normal levels, this winter will go down with above average snow. -Eric
