Boston Vs. Minneapolis Snow-Off

BOSTON (CBS) – If you’re thinking the weather in Minnesota must be snowier and colder than here in New England… you’d be wrong.

We put our statistics up against those from Minneapolis meteorologist Mike Augustyniak of WCCO-TV.

While Minneapolis got off to a very snowy December, Boston has since eclipsed their totals. Compare their 60 inches of total snow this season to our 70 inches – and that’s at Logan Airport, where the snow totals are often much lower than the suburbs.

Augustyniak said the snow in Minnesota tends to be much fluffier than Boston, no good for snowballs and snowmen. Though he says people in Minnesota have a better attitude about winter weather.

    Are you kidding me…. its been around 10 for highs and lows zero or below since halloween with heavy snows We have an office out there, ive heard them say they wish for a 40 degree day since before thanksgiving…

    Yes, but since the December storm that brought down the Metrodome roof the snow here has been falling 2 to 3 inches at a time in the Twin Cities area. That’s so much easier to deal with than a foot at a time. Unfortunately, since we don’t have any melt downs, it will be very messy in March when the sun is higher and the temps start reaching the high 30s. There is already talk of massive flooding around the river areas.
