City of Fort St. John Snow Update January 9th, 2014

This information was posted on the City of Fort St. John site today:

WOW – we’ve checked the snow totals – did you know there was 4 times more snow than average for December! No wonder we were all getting snow weary!

Some interesting statistics (data from Environment Canada) – November average snowfall 30.3 cm – we got 54.1 cm in November 2013 – 1.8X the November average. For December we got 135.6 cm – the average is 32.4 cm – 4.2X the average! PS for those of you who still measure in inches and feet – we had 6.2 FEET of snow in November and December combined – that is 4.2 feet more than we normally get!!!
