Season Snowfall – Sun. updateFebruary 23rd, 2013 at 3:09 pm by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, Weather
It’s another great Sunday for Winter Sports. Next weekend should be another fantastic weekend for hitting the slopes, sledding, skating, getting the snow machine out on the trails or ice fishing. The picture here is from Timber Ridge, which is just NE of Gobles. I’ve took some time and bounced around getting some season snowfall numbers. Many of these are courtesy of the NWS and coop observers. If you keep track of season snowfall, leave a comment and let us know how you’re doing this winter.
