That might change come April.

Interesting link.
NYC makes it, Boston doesn't.
What a dull winter.

Annnnnnd..here we are. March 31, 2016, 5 months later, the last day of winter.

wow, what an amazing winter it wasn't! here in the North-East..
I used my snowblower ONE time this winter, on the one big storm of the year, 18-inches on February 16..

Rochester got 55 inches for the winter..Half the average.
Apart that one 18" snowfall, the rest of it came half an inch at a time..maybe 2-inches at most..

Syracuse wins the Golden Snowball this year:

GoldenSnowball.com | The Golden Snowball Award is a contest between 5 cities in CNY – Upstate New York. The contest is based on which city receives the most snowfall for the snow season. The cities that compete are Albany, Buffalo, Binghamton,

They were 60% of their average..
a very forgettable winter for most of us in these parts..

Scot

The snow is long gone here in the paradise city. a cold front is coming in for the rest of the week. but come next Monday it will be back to the 60's. for you guys in Denver how long does the snow hang around in Dec, Jan and Feb?????????? if we get snow in Dec we are stuck looking at the stuff until at least march. back in the 70's we would get it in November and it would not split town until the end of April maybe even into early May.:bangh ead:

Long LIVE THE POWERSHIFT!! MAY IT NEVER RUST IN PEACE!!

Photo taken 5 minutes ago... but the streets/drives are just wet.
Snow usually melts within a few days around here, might take a bit longer if it's deep.
The April & May snows are always fun though !




Can't complain about the weather in Denver...
