Here in Dallas we don't see much. Usually a couple of ice storms a year with a little snow mixed in. My son was 4 years old before he had probably seen an inch of snow. (He was 15 before he saw several inches and that was when he went with our youth group skiing in Breckenridge, Colorado!) 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?

Oklahoma City average is 9 inches, although it's tended to be less lately. I love it, but we never get much of it, so who knows.

Once upon a time, our area got as much as a foot of snow during some winters. Now we are lucky to get a dusting of snow and have not even had that the past couple of winters as we have had warm winters. sigh.

About 200 inches annually here. I wish it were more like 400.

If I could give you Toronto's 56" to put on top of your 200", I would.

None! I've heard that it does snow here once or twice every 20 years or so.

I heard down in Tucson they had a freak blizzard in January and got about an inch. Haha.

Snow?! Hahahaha... Actually, the last time in snowed in the L.A. area was back in 1989 if I remember correctly. I was living in the high desert, and couldn't go to work (oh, darn!).

OK, I finally found it. My area gets an average of 31 inches of snow per year. Of course, some years we have very little and some years we must have double that. Guess it's not as bad as the areas that get lake effect snow or as much as CC gets.
