Semi-official snowfall total for Champaign-Urbana

I measured 12.7 inches of snow at my house, which is 3 miles west of the official site for Champaign-Urbana (on the corner of 1st and Windsor). Until I can get into work, that will be the semi-official snowfall total for C-U.

[Update] I took measurements at the official site this morning at 10 am and we ended up with 11.5 inches of snow. That brings our monthly snowfall total up to 16.4 inches. Amazingly, that is not the snowiest March on record for C-U. The snowiest was 1906 with 32.0 inches. The second snowiest was 1960 with 20.9 inches.

Also, this brings our season snowfall total to 23.2 inches, which is right at the 1981-2010 average.
