Seasonal Snowfall as of March 25, 2015

Boston, Massachusetts                110.3  inches
Portland, Maine                             91.5   inches
Burlington, Vermont                      80.3  inches
Providence, Rhode Island                75.1  inches
Albany, New York                           73.8  inches
Manchester, New Hampshire            70.1  inches
Hartford, Connecticut                     62.9  inches
Islip, Long Island NY                       62.2  inches
Bridgeport, Connecticut                  58.4  inches
New York City, New York                 50.3  inches
Baltimore, Maryland                        28.7  inches
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania                26.9  inches
Atlantic City, New Jersey                  22.4  inches
Washington DC                              18.3  inches

Every one of the cities listed above is now above their seasonal snowfall average. Our area has had a very good season snowfall wise, 50-75 inches pretty much area wide, but what went on in that city to the northeast of us is truly a once-in-a-lifetime occurrence. Not just because 85% of their snow fell in a five week period, but because they received substantially more snow than every city in close proximity to the north, the west, and south of them.

Cities like Portland Maine, Burlington Vermont, Albany New York, Manchester New Hampshire, and Hartford Connecticut all receive on average more snow than Boston in a typical season. Boston's seasonal snowfall average is 41.3 inches per year, which means they are almost 6 feet above their seasonal average, disgusting and yet remarkable.

Portland Maine, Burlington Vermont, Albany New York and Manchester New Hampshire, receive on average from 25 to 50 more inches of snow per season than Boston. Yet so far this season Boston has received 20 to 50 more inches of snow than all of them. As jealous as I was, it was actually a remarkable and truly a once in a lifetime thing to see, considering that they bull's-eyed in a five week period on every storm that hit the Northeast.

Let's hope that next year that bulls-eye is us, but personally I would prefer it over a longer stretch of time similar to 1995-96. I also have to add that for the first time ever TWC was warranted in giving Boston all of the coverage they did this season.

From the January 26th-27th snow event that busted for many places in the NYC region, CPK had 9.8" of snow while Islip had 24.2" of snow.
