Way back in October and November, we posted the Snow Prediction Contest post on the blog. Your job was to predict how much snow we would see at each of the four ‘big cities’ in the Alleghenies… Johnstown, Altoona, State College, and DuBois.
We closed the contest at the end of November and have been sitting on the results since then waiting for the season to come to an end. Now that it’s over, here’s a look at the winners of the contest and the snow totals from the 2009-2010 snow season.

State College: 20.7″
