    Wouldn't Season to Date totals vs Season Average be easier to understand?

    so far we are short 17" but I hit 18" because voting six was way low. but hey we may catch up a little today now we may get 3"-6" depending if it ever changes over from this god awful rain to snow today :(

    It would have been easier if your poll had a broader range. We need over 30" to make an average winter.

    Vs indicates a comparison. It would just be more logical to compare actuals and expected rather than than deficit. Deficit is the variance to expected.

    We're about 16" over our average snowfall for the season and still have a good 6-7weeks to add to it.
    Last year we had a substantially below average year but that's why it's called an average.

    more than double the yearly average already
    that doesn't seem to be a choice.
