NOAA.gov and selected the city of Worcester, Taunton and Boston being the other two choices. We do typically get a bit less in our service area so you can reduce the totals by a point or two. Here is the data: As of 2/26/2014 we have received 80.6” of snow, last year at this time we had 75.6”. The average snow fall in Worcester between the years of 1892 and 2010 has been 70.0”. Last year however Worcester won the prestigious “Golden Snow Globe Award” as it had the most snow for a city in the U.S. with a population greater than 100K; snow totaling 108.9”.
