Snow Totals Are Down

The started out early with cold and snow in November. Many thought it was going to be a long and rough winter…similar to last year. Then December came around and most places had less than 1″ of snow, if any snow. The first part of January was looking like it was going to make up for lost time with cold and snow returning. No luck for the second half of January this year with above normal temperatures. Here is a snow comparison from last to this year with snow totals through January 14.
