I see the disclaimer of 100K or more people which eliminates quite a few snow towns. I know there are quite a few folks in the U.P. of Michigan chuckling at those "high" snowfall amounts.

Wow, its weird to see Rochester at #2, (where I live), when I only used my snowblower twice last winter! I used it once on 6", once on 24", and the rest of it must have come one inch at a time..

Interesting chart, some places got a lot more snow than average, most didn't get their average.

Even SIOUX FALLS, South Dakota and Rochester, MN are in that list. the Twin Cities did not even crack that. But once again I am not complaining. Hold on to your hats Folks we are in for another EL-NINO Winter next year. at this rate I just may be wearing speedos year round.

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

Speedo board shorts

I'm surprised to see Boston and nearby cities so far up on the list . . .
I guess we need our snow blowers.

I didn't even notice Grand Rapids, MI is listed (we're 20 minutes south suburb). I only looked at the first few high totals. Only used the Ariens 3 times this past winter for driveway and about 7 times for drifting sidewalk duty. My son is at Mich Tech in Houghton MI. They only had 174" this season so far and about the same last two seasons and that's 40" below average for them. They are more below average than some of the highest ranked total cities

I've always been fascinated with the difference a few miles makes. Weather is an absolute crap shoot. I live on Long Island, a mere 7 miles south of Bridgeport CT. Bridgeport gets hammered and we weren't even close. Even though our weather generally comes from the west and north in the winter, Long Island Sound seems to have a dramatic effect on snow totals. There have also been instances where I have gotten over 30 inches on Long Island and New York City, 30 miles to the west, got nothing. The opposite has also occurred. What it boils down to is that the only thing that matters is how much and how heavy the snow that I, personally, have to shovel. I'll take 12 inches of dry powder over 4 inches of wet slush any day. I don't care what the year to date total is.
