  1. Yeah 26° here...temp was bouncing around all night with the subtle wind changes.
  2. Temp dropped 7° in past hour as winds went calm...down to 33°.
  3. Disagree...I think that T of snow falls on the 28th Otherwise I agree unfortunately.
  4. Well at least it felt nice today, 35/19 temp split. Just a T of snow this month...1998 also had a T.
  5. Yeah agree...As I get older those big 20 inchers have gotten too big to handle, so I like the smaller storms if I had to choose. Now that being said, I certainly will never turn down a whopper if offered.
  6. Last measurable snow here was Jan 18th...just a few traces since. Sheesh.
  7. Yes 3/18 was excellent...Had 25" here that month.
  8. Definitely...many times I see something posted which I know isn't correct...That's when I dig out my records.
  9. Our winters are very variable of course when it comes to snow...The decades though do tend to still average not to far from normal. Decadal snowfall from the 70's thru now range from an avg. of 26.2" in the 80's to 31.6" in the 2000's. The exception of course is the 2010's which have averaged 39.5" , not including this year. These are my SI figures...your results may vary.
  10. Been measuring snow since 1974...Have had three seasons with under 10" of snow...So far 6.8" this season. Last time with under 10" was 2011-12.
  11. Yeah had another 3.5" on Apr. 2nd...That was also my coldest April on station record.
