Since many stores have their "Christmas In July" sales, I think that gives me the right to talk about snow in July!  It is, in fact, a very important time for snow.

July first marks the day that the National Weather Service "resets" the accumulated snow totals for the previous season.  So, in essence, July first is the beginning of the 2011-2012 snow season!

Since the chances of seeing snow in July are "slim to none", the National Weather Service uses this as the perfect time to reset the snow tally, to get ready for the next season.

Since we are talking snow, the official snow tally for the 2010-2011 snow season in Erie came with 107.4" of the white stuff.  Cleveland had 69.3", and Buffalo picked up 111.8" of snow.
