Some Awesome US Snow Stats

While visiting Sean Kirst's forum at syracuse.com/kirst and chatting about the Golden Snowball contest a post showed up from one of the members there, creditsuisse. He offered up the best stats I have ever seen to all of us that cover tons of the city's in the US and even Canada. Chris is his real name and he lives in the North Syracuse area. It is by far the most complete list I have come across while researching city snowfall amounts and even Chris admits that it could be flawed a little which is completely understandable for the fact that if you try and research certain data online, a lot of the time you will get conflicting reports. That said if you see something that might be off then just drop us an email or leave a message on the blog here at GSB and we will pass the information on to Chris who will update his stats.

Chris's web page is at http://reinventcny.tripod.com/ and if your a snow stats freak like myself and many others, get ready to awed. I know I was and I can't imagine the hours, days and weeks that probably went into researching all that data. Chris said that with his rankings "incorporated cities" is the criteria for getting on his snow totals list. He has the cities broken down as follows;

* Snowiest US Cities over 1,000 in population
* Snowiest US Cities over 10,000 in population
* Snowiest US Micropolitan and Metropolitan Areas
* Top 10 Snowiest US Metropolitan Areas
* Top 5 Snowiest US Cities over 100,000 in population
* Top 5 Snowiest US Metropolitan Areas over 1 Million
* Canada and the US

An example of one of the lists Chris has put together is below and check out his website at http://reinventcny.tripod.com/ for all the US city snowfall totals.

Thanks again Chris for sharing all the great city snow totals with us here at goldensnowball.com and once again, WOW! Don't forget if you see a mistake or find another city that should be on the list, let us know so we can pass it along to Chris to keep his list updated. Have a great week all and look for snow throughout the week.

I love your site I spent 50 winters in Binghamton. Now we are Snowbirds in Daytona Beach. I check your site every two weeks or so. I'm really disappointed about the snowfall in upstate NY this year

The same here Fran as far as being disappointed goes. On a good note things have been starting to pick up snow wise the last week or so for a few of the cities. Up to a snow expected in the next 24 hours or so. Binghamton has really got to get their snow totals going though. Nothing a good old fashion Nor Eastern can't take care of to help them get back into the race. I think I would miss the snow too much if I were to turn into a snowbird, but then again : )

After looking at the snow stats, I wonder how many cities are left off of the list. I know Houghton MI has an annual snow fall of 180".It's population is over 7000. How could it be overlooked?

Cardfan, Thanks for the heads up. The stats were provided by another website. The man took a lot of time trying to compile all the stats and I know it took a lot of time. He is constantly adding to the list as he becomes aware of them. I'll pass the info on to him so he can check it out.
