    After last winter I am not sure they could throw anything more at us. Last year was #20 for me and by far the hardest we have worked. Salt shortages didn't help and lots of snow. I think it has rained every third day here so who knows what winter will bring. An average winter would be fine for me.

    You're kidding, right?


    Is that the year Buffalo received 7' in a week? Or was that the next year?

    I can't remember exactly, but one year we had about 60" in the month of Dec, the next year we had 60" in the last week of Dec. Both years were right in the '00-'01 time frame. Trust me, it sucks having virtually the entire season's snowfall in 1week or 1 month.

    We had 250.5 cm (100 inches) that year. I can live with those totals. Just above average, we had 72.6 cm (29 inches) Nov-Dec. and 177.9 cm (71 inches) Jan-April. What worries me is they forecast we would have the hottest summer yet, and its been a bust. So who knows what were in store for? Its always been a crap shot.
  7. Actually, Mark, it was December 2001...my very fist time plowing was that week. No snow fell in Buffalo until Dec 24th, then we got 81 inches in 5 days.:dizzy:

    Although, in November of 2000, we got 2 feet in 8 hours the monday before Thanksgiving...

    Thanks, I looked back at the threads from '01 and got my answer. So that leaves me with around 60" in Dec of '00. Still pretty much sucked.

    Go to my post on nj winter outlook......the last 2 post. Some early indication about this winter season. I also found this from Henry over at accuweather.

    I want to clear up some confusion. The previous post was written by one of my blog readers Mark Vogan. I thought he did a great job analyzing the situation and I wanted to share the information with everyone. I know it's only August, but we are already starting to look at the winter and the early indications are that this year the eastern half of the country has a harsh winter. It could even be the type of winter where the snow-starved I-95 corridor folks are screaming for the snow to stop!
