Apparently we average 7 inches a year in Raleigh, NC, although last year we only got about 1 inch total. We also get ice storms and Raleigh got a 22 inch snow storm back in 2000 before I lived here. I moved here from Northern VA, west of DC last year and we averaged about 21 inches there. We did get affected my noreasters from time to time and have had over 2 feet several times in my life when I lived in VA

The reports vary by which weather website I consult, but the consensus seems to be an average of 260 inches of snow annually for our area of Michigans Upper Peninsula. AND I'M SICK TO DEATH OF IT!!!!!

Gross! Sounds like you're getting ready to either hibernate or migrate.

We're hoping to migrate, and soon! But first we have to sell our house here, and in today's real estate market, that could take a long, long while.

Ca. 1987-88 the City of Los Angeles received some serious snow------Northridge to be precise. That storm happened after a big fire.

In NW Arkansas we haven't really had snow in about 7 years (other than a dusting to 2 or so inches). We usually get lots of ice, but we really haven't had too much of that either. Ice is a big problem here in NW Arkansas because of the hills and lots of rural areas.

Yes, it's mostly lake effect. The lakes moderate our weather so that in early winter the warmer water actually has a warming effect of adjacent land, but after the lakes start to freeze the lake effect snows kick in. Certain areas of the U.P. are considered to be in the Lake Superior snow belt such as Alger and Luce County in the central U.P. and Gogebic county, where I live, in the western U.P. Snowmobiling is HUGE around here now, and in the 1970's this was a prime ski area. The resorts are still in operation, but are declining.

We're looking at moving just as far away from the Great Lakes as necessary in order to get less snow but still enjoy nature and the rural lifestyle we love. I'm open to suggestions.
