How does it compare? Locally, there’s been a lot of talk comparing this winter to the winter of 1996-97, when roads were clogged, power lines were toppled, and sub-zero temperatures and persistent winds resulted in significant damage and livestock losses.

While it’s too early to tell what things will look like by March or April, 2017, the snowfall so far this year is far behind January 1 of 20 years ago.

In 1996, there was 35.8 inches of snow by Dec. 16 and 44.1 inches by Dec. 31. There had been saturating rains in October and 12 inches of snow in November.
