Less than 5 inches of snow last year here

According to the weather figures from the local National Weather Service co-op observer, S.R. Fraley, we ended 2017 with less than 5 inches of snow. That is odd. I expect we'll have some above-average years to make up for it.

Here is the data for the 24-hour period that ended at 7:30 a.m. Sunday, Dec. 31, 2017, New Year's Eve:
High; 22 degrees F.
Low, 4 degrees F.
Current: 6 degrees F.
Precipitation: Trace.
Precipitation for the year 42.87 inches.
Precipitation for the month: 1.01 inch.
Snowfall/frozen precipitation: Trace.
Snowfall/frozen precipitation for the 2017-18 season: 1.9 inches.
Snowfall/frozen precipitation for the year: 4.5 inches.
Snowfall/frozen precipitation for the month:1.9 inches.
Relative humidity: 71 percent.

Last night, I partied at home with the wife and our poodles. We had a wild old time. I drank one beer, and was in bed sound asleep by 10 p.m. My wife stayed awake reading until after midnight. She said the neighbors went outside at midnight, set off a couple of firecrackers and quit. It was apparently too cold for them.
When I got up this morning, it was negative 4. I slept late because I didn't have to work today. The mercury never did get into double digits at my house.
It is dang cold in the Ozarks
