Last year we had 280" and over 300" the year before. At some point you stop playing because you will lose discs.
I hereby invite the ribbon and chalk people to come play a round in my area in January or February.

It takes a hearty soul to call the Keweenaw Peninsula home.

Count me in for loving DG when there's a light dusting or even an inch or two on the ground. Enjoyment factor decreases on a steep curve after that, though. My first birdie was a park job in freezing temps and some snow, so I have a fondness for it.

We're still snow free down in the banana belt (southern U.P.) but with snow on the ground for 5 months a year you find a way to play. The last 2 winters were horrible everywhere in the U.P. and I'm hoping for a mild winter this year away from the typical snow belt areas south of Lake Superior.

I just looked up their snowfall totals and it's mind blowing. I complain about winter in Chicago, and we get less than 1/10 of the snow in a normal year.

Used to get UP there for an off road rally, once a year in the fall. Not much snow, but the chance to spend some time in God's country is a treat. Also went UP to Michigan Tech a few times for winter carnival. The snow on the ground can be mind blowing and presents such a different life, that it is hard to imagine living there, lol. A ton of fun.

Yeah, that north east snow can be silly. And it seems to stick around for a while.

Luckily here in Colorado (at least along the front range) we rarely get more than a few inches at a time and most of it usually melts off in a couple of days.

Id rather have snow that sticks than to sit right around freezing all winter and always be dealing with wet slushy grossness.

I have a glow game on Friday and bought a Halloween Buzzz for the occasion. Minus the stamp, the whole disc is plain white. I took it out for a field test yesterday so I could get a feel for it before Friday. There was still some snow on the ground from last weekend, and it landed in a snowbank on hole 2. I spent at least 10 or 15 minutes looking for it, and when I found it, I put it away for the rest of the round, ha.
