    Ah, but this is a _different kind_ of snow!

      That’s right. The northern hemisphere has been getting hot snow since 1979. And it attracts GHG producing worms too! /sarc
      Double whammy!

    Steven,

    If you have time, would you extend the left side of the x-axis to 30-31 degrees F, as in the previous graph?

    Re: Ben’s comment
    There may be insufficient data below 35 deg F to plot. A Dec-Apr winter with an
    average temperature of 35 deg that encompasses the entire 48 contiguous states
    would indeed be a cold one.
