5 feet would be 60 inches which equal 6 inches per year average which west of the Cumberland Plateau runs from a line Dyersburg to Mackenzie to Plesant View to Gallatin to Lafayette and points north. 

The darker blue in Western and Central KY was greatly helped by the events of the winters of 2014-15 and 2015-16 those two winters contributed about 40-45% of the total for the decade.
The all-time average snowfall coming out of the decade of the 1960s was 8.3 inches per year.  That was based on about 85ish years of data (so certainly not small).

True story.

Something terrible happened since that time.  I believe the 30 year average sits somewhere in the 3 to 3.5 inch per year range (a decline from the 1980 to 2009? average of 5.3 inches per year).

I'm going to guess the numbers look truly atrocious when the averages are calculated without the 1980s because we'll then have the worst 3 decades all in the average....maybe less than 3" per year.

Considering that we had 85ish years of data when the all-time average was over 8", that's a rapid and extreme decline.

Noone- to my knowledge--has ever conducted any kind of study on that but it's almost mind-blowing.

Curt has brought up the importance of - AO regimes before which seem of particular importance -for whatever reason- here in Memphis but wow... are we ever going to get a true rebound?

Put on my big snow boots and
I boarded the plane
Touched down in the land of the Delta Blues
In the middle of the freezing rain

Snow up high
Won't you pour down over me
Yeah, I got some accretion
But I'm as blue as a boy can be
