Forbes – 10 Worst Winter Weather Cities

Slide show… shows the Ohio Statehouse in downtown Columbus… there is a sameness in all the photos.  A whiteness.  There is some interesting info about the amount of snowfall and average snow though.

  1. Cleveland
  2. Boston
  3. New York City
  4. Milwaukee
  5. Chicago
  6. Minneapolis
  7. Indianapolis
  8. Columbus
  9. Detroit
  10. Baltimore

Help me with why Columbus is 8th and Detroit is 9th?

8. City: Columbus

Average Annual Temperature: 52.9°F

Average Precipitation: 38.5 inches

Average Snowfall: 28.2 inches

And …

9. City: Detroit

Average Annual Temperature: 49.7°F

Average Precipitation: 32.9 inches

Average Snowfall: 41.4 inches

We are warmer and get less snow?  What am I missing?

Compare Columbus to Cleveland’  “Average Snowfall: 58.9 inches

“Thanks to Channel 4 which had this on their website Tuesday and tweeted it:   Columbus

No link to Forbes there though…
