Snowy Winter?

A snowy winter so far?  Many would say yes, but yet, if you’re in Fargo for example, we are currently right at the average to this point in the winter.  If you want to be precise we are actually running just a smidge below the average.    Therefore, from a historical perspective this winter has not been unusual for snow nor the cold.  I talk about this frequently, but weather memories are short and we often judge our seasons from a recent perception of what we think the season has been, which is often wrong.  Last year we started slow, but had a lot of snow in the second half of winter and finished with 50 inches of snow and we are on that same pace this year.
