They have standards, like "trained spotters" and stuff like that. And they call them "unofficial observations."I don’t know what national weather is thinking. Here in Townsend we got what they are reporting just last night 10.1 inches. The night before an additional 14, so either this is some type of typographical error or they’re just completely up their asses.
No need to get your jimmies rustled. You know how much snow you got. There's no prize for being at 24.1 inches rather than 22.5.
