Looks about right here also. I measured 34", our least amount since I've been here. 48" last year and 43" year prior.
Even though it was the least amount its been the coldest winter out of 4.

Thanks.  It was one of those rare winters here in which it didn't snow an inch.

I was surprised when I looked at my snowfall report (CoCoRaHS) from Nov thru today. 10.1" total as of today.

 Most at one time: 2.5". So several snows of 1" or less.

Snow tends to be dry here, so there wasn't much moisture in that 10.1" amount.
