Superior snowfall totals

Well, hell hasn’t frozen over. But you’ll see we do have a snowfall report for Superior.

So rare is it for Superior totals to appear in a local snowfall report that the crowd of critics and cynics who populate the Internet long considered it to be a conspiracy against the Twin Ports city.

But it’s not.

The National Weather Service relies on volunteer weather spotters for most of its rain and snowfall reports from around the Northland. There are some spotters in Superior, but many happen not to be available to send reports for the early morning rain and snow roundups.

However, on Tuesday, Superior was well represented. The city saw 6 inches of snow by Tuesday afternoon, according to the NWS Duluth office’s local storm report.

To the person who reported Tuesday’s total: We salute you.
