The top pic.(from WJBF) is Blairsville, Georgia with 5″ of snow on the ground on Dec. 8, 2018. Blairsville GA, Greenville SC, Lubbock TX and Albuquerque NM all had more snowfall in December than Muskegon or Grand Rapids, Michigan. West Michigan was pretty much either out of the storm track or too warm for snow (and especially lake-effect snow). It may take until the 3rd quarter this year, but I do think that Muskegon eventually wins this race. Look for more snow events and colder temperatures to start sometime during the week of Jan. 11-17.
