    I have a very large site im bidding and they want a seasonal price.

    I need to some how figure the average snow fall so I can get a general idea how many times I will be plowing at 2" or more.

    You can check out weatherunderground.coms almanac for your area...if not email your local weather guys and they should be able to tell you.

    Your best bet is going to be either call a local TV station or check with the weather service in Muskegon or GR. The closest historical data I can find on NWS is for Muskegon, and I wouldn't base my pricing on that far away. I wouldn't even base it on Grand Haven for that matter.

    I keep a log book of accumulations of mesurements I take at the office. Our routes cover quite abit of area so for each account can get different amounts thanks to being close to the lake.
