The last blizzard so designated by our local Weather Guys lived up to its description out towards the Northwest Passage; meanwhile, the Quarter Mile High City got basically squat. Still, we’d had just over five inches of snow this month, which is decidedly above average. (Average for a whole winter is about 8.6 inches, or about three hours’ worth of your standard garden-variety nor’easter.)
Wow, *preliminary* total snowfall for Arnett (35 mi S of Woodward) in Feb: 42.5 inches (!!!!!!) Breaks OK record 4 any location, any month.
Gawd. That’s, like, a whole year in Saskatoon.
Previous monthly record: February 1971 in Buffalo, about 60 miles north of Arnett, 39.5 inches, 36 of which came in one fell swoop on the 20th through the 22nd.
