sticking to its 17 inches. a measuring mishap was questioned leading the agency to look into whether the total was too low. they found the method was not eye deal, but the total stands based on nearby unofficial measurements. the report recommended future changes at official measuring sites. and the controversy around this, there were questions about whether the actual monitoring device, measuring device, was in the right spot, whether it was blocked by some of the snow, if it was calibrated correctly. >> i saw it with my own eyes. i trudged through it. it looked like more than 17 inches. do you know who would know? chuck bell would know. what do you say? >> the trick is in how you measure. the reason they need to sweep the snow off the snow measuring board each time is because the weight of the snow actually compact it s it down. taking it out and dusting it
