    Go to the National weather Service web site, type in your zip code, click on public info statement under current conditions.

    Yah w.u.g had more locations, but not all the ones I needed. Its a PITA when you tell people X amount of dollars per 3" and you're trying to figure out exactly how much snow you got.

    Thats what I use to weather.gov same thing. I pick the nearest city and use those totals, generally they are the same, but in some instances you need to use the old ruler really fast and measure it. I generally take a picture incorporating some aspect of the property that is recognizable just for proof if needed. always make sure you do that in at least 3 locations on the property they dont need to be far away like 20-50 feet apart is ok, but you there are those low areas and drifting areas that should be accounted for. But as long as you have numbers close together snap the pic on the last one and push away.

    We use local TV stations. Many have snowfall amounts as well as a weather almanac where you can pull up wether records for each day for the past year. Example -- http://www.kcci.com

    They are based out of Hackettstown NJ, but they cover a wide area. Their web site is www.weatherworksinc.com. I have attached a report that I send to my per inch customers along with their bill.
