Hope you're feeling better.

Every seasonal forecast had more snow than actually fell. Our only forecast below P-O-R-N was 98% (snowman) and even he was 114" too high. But I like his chances to win this. You won't have to change the order very much in the table you already have anyway. :) -- Roger Smith

I'm on the mend but can only work for limited periods.

Season-total snowfalls rank 11th out of 15 (04/05 thru 18/19).
You're right about the table not needing much re-ordering.

So much for the CW about warm ENSO & bonus snows.
