Unusual Snow Totals

Local snow totals for the season are a little above normal.  The recent snow events have allowed us to make up the deficit we had built up the past couple of months.

However, some of the winter totals in other parts of the USA are just staggering.  Some places are running 60 to 70 inches ABOVE normal.
