I think you mean Feb., not Nov.

Speaking of records, even Central Park almost broke the daily snowfall record, and for that date it was set way back in 1870! (8.0") The way it split before/after midnight caused it not to happen (I think it was just an inch or 2 short!). All the other tri-state area stations except JFK (which had less due to a lot more rain mixing in) broke theirs, I think they were all set in 1994 but I'm not sure about Bridgeport, I think your chart showed a different year.

LOL! Thanks. Fixed. I had the Nov 7 NorEaster snowstorm on my mind I guess.

You're right about the "split". If the storm started just 4hrs earlier it would of broke for many more locations.

It really looked exactly like a gigantic hurricane, eye and all. That's absolutely nuts.

Anyone starting to warm up (pardon the pun) to the fact that climate change (manmade or natural) might have something to do with all these century storms?

According to my neighbor, CT never had this kind of weather until I showed up three years ago. So it's my fault. Sorry.

We moved here 3 years ago too and a neighbor also said the same thing to us.

Not yet on the manmade front.... We had a very cold 1970s and numerous storms of this caliber in the late 19th (and 20th) centuries. On the other hand very active sunspot activity might be worth further investigation.

Yes it sure was. Tonight was even nicer still.

BTW, you forgot to turn your headlights on this morning.
