Local expert says this winter was among the worst ever


KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- So just how bad was this winter?

WMU Meterologist Robert Ruhf says it has been colder, but not for many years, and its rarely been snowier. In fact we could still break the record for snowfall.

He says there was one year in the 50’s one in the 60’s , three winters in the 70’s and the latest in 1994, that actually had colder temperatures.

That means that anyone under the age of 20 has just survived their worst winter they have ever seen.

He says there has only been one winter that was snowier in Kalamazoo. That was in the 60’s and we could break that record if we got 5 more inches of snow.

So if you were able to get a T-shirt that read “ I survived the winter of 2014”, others would sympathize and probably want one too.
