    I need to show a client some historical data. I have been looking all over to find how many 2"+ snowfalls we have each year. So far I have had no luck. I know it is roughly 15 on average but this lady needs to see the actual data...
    Where is the best place to find this? We are in Detroit Lakes, MN 56501, the closest larger city is Fargo, ND 58103. I have found some data for Minneapolis but they get a lot less snow than we do do that doesn't work...
    If someone could post a link I would really appreciate it.

    She was is a lawn client as well and very easy to deal with, actually a very nice lady. She is just debating on paying for the season in full vs per push... she just moved here last spring so has no idea what to expect and seems to be a numbers person.
    Do you have a link to the historical snowfall data?

    If you do find totals ,I hope you plus or minus her. What they report and what falls in her area could be 2 different things.
