    I too am up around 90" for the season. Forecast says we may get above 32 degrees for the first time in a month it seems. Need some warm days to start melting these mountains of snow. I feel like I'm on vacation, it's been nearly 4 days since I plowed last.

    No idea what ours is, or even where to find it. We are usually just under what Buffalo gets...

    I don't know the totals but I'm lovin it. I'm making more doing snow removal then cutting lawns in the summer. Of course we don't get hit hard like we have this year. I have customers telling me I'm having a great year this season. No problem getting paid either. I get my rate and usually a $10-20 tip.

    GV,
    looks like you are in the lead for the Golden Snowball Award this year. We have 75 inches so far this year in Rochester NY.

    Somewhere around 92-93" here, officially.

    Above normal, no where close to a record.

    We're still the snowiest city in the nation wesport....you can have it! Last I looked we were at 110" but that was over a week ago. Even local forecasters said areas like the snow belt which is a matter of a couple miles south of my house are well above that. Ive had so many people say we're having such a bad winter, I say no its just a typical (maybe a few inches more) winter. How soon they forget,lol
     
  20. The only year close to the average on that trophy was 2003-2004, for a city of at least 100,000 population, Syracuse, NY is the snow capital of the USA. Last Monday Syracuse got 5 inches, up by Lake Ontario we got over 2 ft in less than 24 hours. Lake Erie is almost froze over, stopping the lake effect, but Lake Ontario has a lot open water.
