Ours is 98"

2000/2001 - 105"
2001/2002 - 65"
2002/2003 - 75"


So we are due.

Also we plowed
2000/2001 - 30 times
2001/2002 - 15 times
2002/2003 - 18 times

We are over due, all I ask for is an average year.

Sounds like you get a bunch of little storms - the best kind in my opinion. What's your trigger?

We average about 45 inches a year,with an average of 18 plowable events.Most are on a 2" trigger.

Not a huge amount of snow,but it's a lot for a busy metro area where there is little room to put it.

We usually average 25+ plowable events per season, and anywhere from 150"-180" on average, last year we were probably closer to 200"- 210". We had one stretch where it snowed for 8 days straight and we had a minimum of 4" each time, usually closer to 6-8". I hope we have another similar winter!!!

Here's a perfect example of the lake effect machine-
Joe only lives about 20 minutes from me, and is probably 15 miles south in lattitude. He is south of the lake, where I am more east of the lake, prevailing winds in my area tend to come in from the east and pick up a lot of moisture off of Lake Ontario, and quite convienently drop it in my back yard!! Gotta Love it. I will see if I can find some pics of a few of the past years winters and put them up- I have to have some 35mm ones I can scan in somewhere- just need to ask my wife where.

I will also keep you guys jealous by posting some throughout the year! Lol!!

Official closest NWS station average is 23.9". My records going back to 1993\4 show that they are correct! The problem here is we never have an average year. It's either way below that number, or way above. I think only 1 or 2 seasons that i have records for were within a few inches of average. One of those seasons we didn't even drop the plows, and only salted twice, that was a depressing winter for sure :headwall

Around 60-70" is average here i believe. Last year we got over 100". Third highest amount in recorded history, which goes back over 100 years.
Missed the highest by less then a foot or darn close to that amount.

Just checked the environment Canada website and we average about 51" with 10 - 12 plowable events. That's why we have Meyers around here that don't break down! They hardly have anything to do.:D That's an average event of 4". Can't even imagine 200"! Like EZSnow we only had a few (4-5) plows last year. Looks like we're making up this year though, how about you EZSnow?
Wyldman it sounds like each of your plows is almost debatable with 45 / 18 = 2.5". I hate those because the customer's 2" and my 2" are about 2" apart!!!!!:mad:
