It seems like every time we go a couple of weeks with little or no snowfall people start asking questions about how unusual that is. This region tends to average only between 5 to 10 inches of snow most of the months during the winter. Plus, much of that average come from just one or two storms. So to have 25 days of a month without snow or very little is quite typical, followed by one bigger storm that may drop several inches. This happens in the summer as well, one or two thunderstorms tend to drop a high percentage of a monthly precipitation total. What all this means is it only takes one storm to take you from below to above average very quickly.
