The Snow Zone
   My un-scientific snow page
                 

After moving to North Bend, one of the things that appealed to me was that we would be getting snow on a regular basis in the winter.

Lucky (?) for me, the first two years we moved here were the heaviest snowfall seasons they'd had in 10-15 years, according to the locals.  I decided to write down certain stats, to do a year over year comparison.  This is just casual observations made during the season... nothing scientific or anything, but I think its pretty interesting!

Here's the summary of the 'records'... the 'most' or 'earliest' or 'longest' when it comes to the snow where we live.

This is my 'unscientific' attempt at keeping a summary of what happened over the years.  Most of the individual snow events are listed in the 'Currently' section of my site... eventually, it'll get more and more interesting as time goes on.

oh... a "snow event", to me, is when there's a half inch of snow or more... after the 09-10 season... I might modify that to a "dusting'... =]
