Kind of a blah photo that looks like a sepia from the 1880s.

Snowbelt. Seemed incessant at the time. Also, the overcast in the non-winter months just seemed to never end.

Lazy reporting, Marquette, home to NMU has, almost 4 times the amount of snowfall of Kalamazoo, as does Boulder, CU and I suspect many others.

Boulder?

No way. Edit: In aggregate due to the two or so seasonal dumplings, Boulder might come close. The misnomer is that it enjoys over 300 sunny days per year and the ground is rarely snow covered for long. It snows and then melts.

Like I said, go look at a traffic cam pic of Boulder right now and you'll see sunny and no snow, conversely, Kalamazoo keeps what falls until March.

I love when people tell me they couldn't live in Denver metro because it's too snowy and cold.

That's fun to play around with... especially like the map mode, since it auto-repopulates when you move it around.

Some have to move to the East Coast where the odds are better to meet chicks.

I am going to guess that you have not lived in Michigan for a long time. I was amazed when I came back here to live, as this year aside, the new norm is snow - melt - snow - then melt. Most winters seem more like the old, southern, mud strewn winters than the snow belt that I new from the 70s and 80s! In the last ten years I have calibrated as many New Years Eves here in the 40s and 50s as I have in the 20s and 30s.

I am sure that you are right about Boulder, but the facts are that current stats show Boulder Co. averages 193.3 inches per year to Kalamazoo's 58 inches per year.

My mother has lived in Arizona for over 25 years now and every winter she comes home to visit and with the exception of this year, there is no snow on the ground and the temps are often in the high 30s to mid 40s. Every year she says that we must be having a freak winter because there is no snow or at least none that will stick for more than a few days. In here mind, Michigan winters are the same today as they were in 1985. She understands that since 1985 Kalamazoo has gone from a USDA plant hardiness Zone 4 to a Zone 6, but she still can wrap her head around the fact that this means the region is warmer in winter or that the winters are now shorter.

For what it is worth, Boulder is still a Zone 4 - cold zone! 03-thumbsup

FWIW, I'm watching the snow reports and am hoping for some powder in the high country, that's why I live here. 03-thumbsup

Colorado is an incredible state and I would not mind living there at all.

I find it hard to be away from the shores of Lake Michigan in the summer, but being able to bike in the Rockies would help.

Michigan Tech isn't one of 'em? They have had 201 inches this year and currently have 38 on the ground.

Worse than the snow in winter, is the lack of sunshine in west Michigan. Once you lived in a more sunny locale, the lack of sunshine in this area is really depressing. Most cities in West Michigan only average around 180 days of sunshine a year.

Now that I am back, I find that this bothers me more than the cold and snow.

RE: #7 Ranked Broncos
Totals are one thing, snow on the ground (like on the web cam now) incessantly, is quite another, heh. Brrrrrrrr. I'm getting cold reading about it, (and sitting here in New Jersey is making me cold too) I think I'll fly back to my place in Arizona this weekend and thaw out. :-)
