Well let's just say on the all important snow hole, someone made a critical 15 foot putt for bogey, someone made a critical 9 foot putt for par and someone else ;) made bogey.

The drum roll please:

Total seasonal snowfall for PHL: 28"

Temps (departures):  DEC +4F, JAN +4F, FEB +2F

White Christmas:  No for PHL, coastal plain; cutoff somewhere along the Tom-Parsley-Quakertown line and points northwest for a White Christmas.

Inquiring minds want to know.  Was Hurricane waiting for the TACT forecast release?

I feel sorry for Glenn, that is almost exactly my mindset for this winter.  One really bad month (for me bad is about the temperatures).  28" vs 33", pretty close.

Leaning to 35", since it worked well for 90F days.

I guess point Northwest meant Binghamton.  :(  

PHL thru 12/24 was -0.7F, so December is going to verify colder.

Despite relatively cool temps, have to pick-up our game to hit TAC's 28", and my 35"

Well at least this map is exaggerating the differences, must be counting sleet as snow, IDK. I've only had 0.4",  ACY 0.5", ABE 2.1", BOS 11.5"  & ALB "only" 29.8". 

Yes just like our day on the course, the atmosphere has not been making any putts for us.

LOL,I feel a little better now, hope I don't have to use that map for my post-season verification

I've had roughly the same amount of snow here as you have, just to confirm that the map is a bit inflated with its snow totals. Maybe it doesn't account for melting due to warm ground temperatures when snow is being recording on the radar? I'm not sure...
