We are heading into the Winter season and the snows have already began to fall. Who will be the big winners this year??? Courtesy to Geo's map below, I think it's a good time to kick off our regional Snowfall Contest.
There are 18 stations within the Midwest/Southern Plains/Great Lakes where all members; I hope, reside close by to one (at least within a 100 miles).
Here is the map which was created with airport codes of each station.
For the contest, pick a snowfall tally you think each airport station will end up with at the end of the season. Below is the average seasonal snowfall total of each place.
GRI (Grand Island, NE) 29.0"
FSD (Sioux Falls, SD) 44.5"
OMA (Omaha, NE) 26.4"
AAO (Wichita, KS) 14.7"
TUL (Tulsa, OK) 9.7"
MCI (Kansas City, MO) 18.8"
STL (St. Louis, MO) 17.7"
DSM (Des Moines, IA) 34.9"
MLI (Moline/Quad Cities, IL/IA) 33.5"
LSE (La Crosse, WI) 46.1"
MSP (Minneapolis-St. Paul, MN) 50.6"
AUW (Wausau, WI) 59.6"
MKE (Milwaukee, WI) 49.2"

IND (Indianapolis, IN) 25.9"
GRR (Grand Rapids, MI) 77.1"
DTW (Detroit, MI) 44.8"

All average snowfall are the 30 year average between 1981-2010.
Three tiebreakers, just in case...

#2: December snowfall total for Chicago, IL (ORD).
#3: Snowfall total for Marquette, MI (MQT) in January.
Deadline: 11:59 PM CST, Sunday December 4th.
