In Ontario, areas in our snow belts that usually get lake effect receive 75-150" annually.

I believe the average I saw was wrong. Our average is 130 cm, which is about... 49". Wow, I guess that still is pretty dern heavy.

*Buffalo NY gets 96 inches a year.

The roads can get pretty nasty down here when we do get precip because we are not as prepared to deal with it as northern areas where it is typical...and we are not as experienced driving on it either!

Some areas of Texas do get more snow than D/FW. When we lived in Lubbock out in the Panhandle of Texas, the year before we left we got 10 inches one week-end and 18 inches a couple weeks later. So... it does snow in Texas but not so much in Dallas.

How much does your area usually see? How frequently? Do you like it or not?
not too much this year.

Northeast North Dakota and northwestern Minnesota typically get around 45 inches of snow a year....of course it blows around all the time....and doesnt melt so it seems more.

Too much! Some years we have to trim down our snowbanks because the snow blower can't blow high enough. I hate snow and any snow is too much. At least in the mountains there's skiing and things to do. Here we just freeze and wait for it to go away.

In Sheridan we have an average of about 75 inches of snow a year. Much much more up on top.

Do you live in a "snowbelt" area?
We don't get it quite that bad, but a few hours drive away they do.

I heard down in Tucson they had a freak blizzard in January and got about an inch. Haha.
I was just in Tucson, and I can see how they'd be snow-free. Funny thing, though. Drove up to the top of Mt Lemmon right outside of Tucson and they apparently get around 200 inches a year. It's amazing what a mile or so of altitude will do.

I am about 60mi N of Minneapolis. Friends say I am in a snow belt. Seems we always have more snow than the cities do. It varies from year to year. Some not so bad and other years, awful!

Not as much as it used to, but we still get plenty (Maine). Though I am on the coast, so I get less than areas that are a little inland, I think the kids on my island had 7 snow days (off from school) last year!
