139.5" so far this year. 41+ just for Feb. Above normal for this area (Northern Maine) but not too bad I guess. They are saying we will be pushing 180" by the end of the season this year. 12" tonight and tomorrow, then another storm Friday, with another one right behind that one as well. I was in High School in the UP of Michigan, so this isn't squat . Locals are complaining though, LOL. They didn't believe me when I told them I moved to Maine for the milder winters. Normal is 110" a season for this area.

Oh, I know the answer to this one without looking it up again. As I was searching for my year to date highs and lows, which I still can't find,, I did see that my area has had 12 and a half inches of snow so far this season. I knew we were below average and I don't care, but we're WELL below average. We get 31 inches of snowfall per season in a normal year.

It's interesting that you brought this subject up. This morning TWC was showing the different areas that are way above average for snowfall. They said NH was over 20 inches above average so far. A lot of areas seem to be high this season.

I knew snowfall tailed off the farther west in SD you went but I didn't know you guys averaged that little. I believe Des Moines, IA even averages more, despite being well south. They've had somewhere around 50 inches this year, so I've heard.

My grandmother's town: Oskaloosa, IA: just southeast of Des Moines had a foot + snow fall on them in a 3 hour period followed by another foot of snow a couple days later. This was just a couple weeks ago. She said the snow is the deepest shes seen in 50+ years living in the same house
