Snowfall predictions for Snowpalooza 2011!!

Monday, January 31, 2011

Just for fun let's predict the total snowfall amounts for Saline County. I don't have any prizes, but it should be fun nonetheless!

Also if you have pictures of snowy farm scenes (safely taken after the storm has passed) please send them to me at mgorrell@marshallnews.com and I will post them on the Agriculture online page, along with your name.

I still haven't heard an official snowfall amount. We have drifts over 4 foot tall, but I'm not sure there is a place untouched by the wind where I could get an accurate measurement. Amy ideas?

Response by Eric Crump/Editor:
KMMO said 14 inches.

I've got some drifts over 3 feet near my house and I'm not sure how we will measure the exact snowfall amounts. I can say it is the worst snow I've seen in a long time (maybe ever) and I think we are only half way through the storm!! Be safe everybody.

I predict Marshall will receive 22.32 inches! I don't want 22.32 inches of snow, but it's coming down fast.

14.5 in Northern Saline County. I want to thank all the farmers who keep the weeds down/burned off in their fence rows. A special Huzzah for those farmers who take down the fences. That keeps down the snow drifts.

John says 18.5 inches will fall.

I think we'll get very close to the prediction - put me down for 23.25 inches.

I'll go first - 16 inches in the Napton area. (I have no scientific basis for this just an uneducated guess!)
