These 10 Massachusetts Cities Are the Snowiest in the State
We're a month out from the Christmas holiday and Massachusetts residents are looking at a week of 40-degree temperatures.
Besides a few snow flurries here and there, Massachusetts residents have yet to see a significant snowfall this holiday season. While this might make some snow haters happy, skiers, winter sports enthusiasts, and snowplow drivers are less than thrilled.

An average Massachusetts winter will bear a snowfall of 49.5 inches, but the amount each municipality gets is certainly based on where you live. Typically, this first significant snow in western Massachusetts occurs between late November and early December.
In a normal winter season, Berkshire County has been known to get some pretty decent snow cover and it got me wondering, what city in Massachusetts gets the most snow?
According to HomeSnacks, an analytics site that "combines recent data from the Census, FBI, OpenStreetMaps, and dozens of other sources into bite-sized studies", the following list is the snowiest cities with over 5,000 people.
