The snowfall total, so far

snowman snowfall total 2011-03-01Now that February is (thankfully) over, we figured it's a good time to check in on the snowfall total for this winter (so far): 77.5 inches.

That's relatively high. During a typical winter we've usually only had about 49 inches by this point. This season's total now ranks at #18 overall (it's our understanding we don't get a trophy until we reach the top 3 -- it's like the Olympics).

And worry not -- your recent whining about this winter did have merit. The NWS reports the combined total from January and February this year -- 64.5 inches -- is the highest Jan-Feb total on record in Albany.

By the way: the snowiest winter on record here: 1970-71, at 112.5 inches.

Just for the record, Syracuse is currently at 160 inches, which if it stopped today would only be its 10th snowiest winter. I lived there for 12 years, and my feet were never dry.


That snow is Too Damn High!
