Comparing this season’s snow to the 10 snowiest on record

By  | 

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG) - The past month has had much more snow than usual, but we still have a lot of ground to make up to put this into one of the top 10 snowiest seasons on record. Through February 13, though, this season does crack the top 10 in most places and is just shy of the mark in Cedar Rapids. Remember that there wasn't much snow in December and the first half of January, which makes the ranking all the more interesting.

Below are the snowfall totals for the season so far, along with the highest ten snowfall totals up through February 13, and the ten snowiest winters as a whole.
