Default How bad has this season been?

So tomorrow is February and Lansing hasn't had a blanket of snow on the ground for three days in a row yet this season. We have had 3 snow events. All of them less than 6 inches. One was around 5 inches and the other two were around 3 inches. All of them culminated with green lawns within the week.

No snow days for the city schools. Not a one.

I can count the number of days I scraped my windows in the morning on one hand. I'm not even remotely close to exaggerating.

Sledders have had at best 6 days of the entire winter where there was enough snow to slide down the hill.

Cross country skiers have gotta be hurting. I know the resorts and jobs related to the snow sport industry are hurting. (snow shoes, snowmobiles, ski, snowboard, snowblade, ice fishing, etc)

Some people are thrilled with the bad weather. Meanwhile the snow industry and tourism suffers.
