If "precipitation" can be 36" while "snow" is 91", are they implying that snow is not precipitation???


If they mean rain, why not just say RAIN! Yeesh. Trying to sound all sophistomocatednessified. :)

I knew just about which one's I'd get too. I got a few towns/cities in each of the two Northern most states on both coasts. Alaska & Washington,, and Maine & New Hampshire... along with a random Colorado and two random New Jersey's.
Let's see... what I like... mountains, some snow and the ocean. ::ding::ding::ding:: that website wins a prize for fairly accurate "computations". 8-}
