Snowfall Records- 1940s and 1950s

I have had a few emails mentioning that they are having issues posting comments. It is a Microsoft Internet Explorer issue. Many web pages have problems, but not all address it. Again, the link at the right to Firefox is will work best. It is free and safe. If you can not download it and have problems, you copy and paste this link in a new browser window:

Snowfall in the 40s and 50s does reach some of your childhoods. You can see below that the 1940s in Baltimore were fairly consistent and slightly above the average. In 1949-1950, less than 1 inch of snow fell. No one blamed Global Warming then....
In fact the 1950's is an outlier decade since it averaged nearly 7 inches below normal. One standout is the monster year of '57-'58 with 43 inches. I will examine some of the reasons a little deeper after this series is done.
