Abstract
The snowhazard is urbanized North America is small because snowfalls are frequent, recurring, and expected. The costs of adjustment are high, relative to other natural hazards, and the pattern of adjustments, public, are reasonably well organized. The damage pattern is one of active disruption rather than one of death and destruction. A method was developed for use in informing municipal decisions concerning what is, in the northern tier of states, an expensive public service. (Author)
