    im from cape ann, right out on the end there....1st off i dont think any of the north shore is getting anything, 2-4 to the west of Rt 95..... east of 95 nothing but rain......ya compared to the counties to the west of us , we get less, BUT...we usually get ocean affect snow, which ( just like wat they get in new york form the great lakes) boosts us up pritty well, we got about 15 inches of ocean affect snow last season, about 4 diffrent storms.....but we also get huuuuuge drifts in the big nor'easters..in the huge blizzard last season ( jan 15 ) we had drifts up to 8 feet.....we also got 39 inches of snow in that storm....but so-far this season in my location we have got about 4 inches of snow ......average is 46.5 inches...not doing to good....but the systems are all still coming here, we get about 1 or 2 a week, but they are al rain,,,,the problem is that with the advancing storm we get south-west / south-east winds wich pull up warm ari,a nd turn are snow, into rain....but i do not know why that is happening...but that is wats going on her,e atleast for the coastline....
