    NOT ENOUGH !!!

    you have heard of "straving artists"

    We have starving snow plow operators here in South East Michigan. I think the total for the year was 24" and 21 of those fell in December.

    Officially 104.6 against the normal of 79.2. A lot of that came at an inch a day back in January, just fast enough to keep everything slicked up.

    Average about 35 inches in downtown Boston, currently at about 39. If we finish at that total I'll have no complaints. Although that does pale incomparison to the winter of 96' when we had 108" in downtown .

    Right now we are at 67 inches for the season, since November through today, average for our area is 45inches, pretty decent year. Just my two cents

    I posted this on another thread...

    We've had 41" so far this year, in my plowing area. To the North and West, where I plow for my brother, they probably got about 48" so far this year.
    I have my old records of the past few winters.
    Here's the standings I was able to find. I have records back to 92 though, somewhere.

    1995 - 96 75" (there was a 28" blizzard this year)
    1996 - 97 Less than 6"
    1997 - 98 4"
    1998 - 99 12"
    1999 - 2000 6"
    2000 - 2001 41"

    On that other thread, BRL posted that the NWS has an average for Newark of 24". That's the exact average these years come out to.

    Here in Albany the news said a few days ago somewhere around 78" it was in the mid to high seventies. Called it a 130% winter which figuring the average 63" is about 80"
    My records show about a foot less. My record keeping abilities have a long way to go before they reach Chucks level. Man I gotta get a secretary before next year. At the rate the money is coming in I should have a Grand Total by July. Maybe June but that's wishful thinking. All in all I love it, wouldn't trade it for anything else:)

    Skyphoto - last winter up here (considered to be "snow country") the city hall records indicate about 10" total! And the two winters before that were both 11". Needless to say, this one has caught a lot of people off guard!

    Our average is around 75".
    So far this year we are at 91". Most of which has come since new years.
    Sure beats the 44" last winter.
    But its not anything like 95-96, 144" that year.
    Almost double the average then.
