Did You See? Record Snowfall in Erie.

DID YOU SEE?

Erie, PA is currently NUMBER ONE on the list of Top 10 Snowiest Cities for 2013/2014 on http://goldensnowglobe.com/current-top-10-snowiest-cities/.


Erie's average snowfall is 78 inches. Currently, Erie has had 115.1 inches.  We are only 3.6 inches below the 10th snowiest year on record…It's likely we will pass that benchmark. 
It may be raining today (first rain I've seen in months) but there is plenty old man winter still hanging around. These measurements are taken at Erie's International Airport. 


North East, PA (home of Grape Arbor Bed & Breakfast) usually gets a lot more snow than Erie. The average snowfall is 99.4 inches. I found that number on
