You can see that most of New York State was covered with snow, except one of the snowiest cities in New York, Buffalo.

So far this year, the snow has been lacking for much of the state. Expect for a couple of major storms, it has been pretty quiet when it comes to snow.

Here is where some of the bigger cities sit in terms of snowfall in inches this winter courtesy of

Buffalo 124.8
Syracuse 54.6
Binghamton 48.2
Albany 41.9
Rochester 36.3

Besides Buffalo, the rest of the cities on the list are well below their average snowfall. Rochester and Syracuse both have seen nearly 3 feet less of snow this winter than their average.

Only Albany has been somewhat close to their average. which is 49.2 inches of snow.

It hasn't been a great winter for outdoor sports, but when the snow does fall it sure does make for an amazing picture from space.
