Now that it's May, we're going to call an end to the snowfall season. Yep, we're aware it could snow some more -- we're just going to act like that's not possible.
OK, so how does this past snowy winter stack up against the records?
The final total was 87.2 inches. That's good for the #14 spot on the chart of snowiest winters. Of course, that has to be taken with a few chunks of rock salt -- the chart only goes back to 1884-85.
By the way: The latest snowfall on the books for this area is May 28, 1902. The average last snowfall is April 20.
