As expected and keeping with climatology, Minneapolis, MN is the winner by over 400 HDD's. Badger fans may be disappointed they are losing the season series with the Gophers in hockey but it's hard to say if they mind finishing behind them in HDD's. In any event, Madison, WI is the clear runner-up with 3643 HDD's. Thanks to a stronger start, Lincoln, NE edged out Iowa City, IA for 3rd place. Ann Arbor, MI and Evanston, IL (Chicago) were in the middle and Bloomington, IN finished 1 HDD behind Columbus, OH to finish in last place for the season.
Without further adieu, here are the final standings for the 2012-2013 winter, with a comparison to the 2009-2010 winter to show how this reasonably mild winter compared to a cold one.
