Also, except for 2 years ago, we have been back to "normal" winters where we have snowcover for extended periods of time--45-60 days instead of a week at a time here or there. 2 years ago I don't think we even had 1 week straight of snowcover but 3 or 4 years ago we set a record for most consecutive days with an inch or more.
Wouldn't the Lakes not freezing over(or not as long or as much) have something to do with increased snow falls for Grand Rapids? Really doesn't have to be all that cold to snow
