We average about 110 inches a year. last couple of years has been real light in the snow department and we only ended with 75 or 80". This year has been making up for it though. Mid-Jan we had already had 90+ inches and sense then we have had several storms that have dropped over 10" each. We have to be at 120-130 already this year I would guess.

My family lives in central NH and they have seen around 75 inches so far this season. It has been much snowier compared to last winter there.

central Minnesota 19, predicting highs today and tommorrow of 30

All that snow at East ?---wow
In fact I was doubtfull, so I checked my huge US weather manual that gives averages for the last 50 years.

Caribou Maine averages 112 inches per year.
Marquette Michigan in the Upper Peninsula has 135 inches for an average,

Not the places for me !

Another place to check is here: National - Average Snowfall (http://www.met.utah.edu/jhorel/html/wx/climate/normsnow.html - broken link)

Gives lots more places I wouldn't want to live, like VALDEZ, AK average snowfall for the last 22 years is 328.4" No I don't have the decimal in the wrong place either. Three Hundred twenty eight inches a year. And I thought I had a hard time finding a place to plow 110" a year.

I'm still here, storms were rough, but we rode them out. Today's weather is more tranquil and much cooler, in the 40's from the mid 70's yesterday and last night. SUpposed to be 30 in the morning. Wow, talk about a roller coaster ride with temps around here.

Thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers for all of us here in the South yesterday and last night. We surely did need them.

We got hit with a big snowstorm last Friday with 10" of snow and today, only 5 days later we are having another one.

Freezing rain, maybe 1/2" on top of 6" of snow this morning, followed by a 6-9 hour break and then we're fixing to get another 4-10".

All of these storms we've had less than 24 hours notice for the severity (they forecast just a light dusting a day earlier) and all of them have originated around the Gulf of Mexico. Apparently these were big rain storms in places like Arkansas and Missouri, but by the time they get to us the air is barely below freezing so we get boat-loads of snow instead.
