I do understand that some wacked out druggies think that 1,500 miles Eastward is somehow called the Middle-of-the-West of something. I simply do not inject enough drugs to 'expand' my mind to encompas how going so far East is the the middle of anyone's 'West'.
I like the descriptive humor

1. Its called the NE snowstorm because it hit all NE corridor cities.

2. Chicago does not get big snowstorms like the NE because our majority snowfall comes from two different sources. Chicago is lake effect, biggest snowfalls come from Nor'easters.

3. NE cities with the exception of Boston (They average more) average around the same amount of snow anually. So, NYC, Philly, Baltimore, DC if its snowing in one city, chances are these cities have seen or will see the same weather system.

4. NE cities with the exception of Boston (Its gets colder), don't see big differences in temperature usually a 5 degree difference between NYC & DC.

5. I'm not sure about the other NE cites, but Baltimore received its first snowfall around the middle of October.

You must be defining NE as New England. Here it's being used as Northeast, especially considering that New England (and Nebraska) got none or very little snow this past weekend.

Northeast=New England (ME,CT,MA,VT,NH,RI) +Mid-Atlantic (NY,PA,NJ,MD,DE,DC)

Parts of New England got a ton of snow (2 feet or more in parts of MA), but forest keeper's house didn't, so there was no NE snowstorm apparently. It's all a MSM conspiracy.

Most of the Northeast looks pretty well covered at the moment : Intellicast - Snow Cover in United States

True Maine got about a 1/4 inch last night, they were calling for 5 to 8 inches.

If such a storm occurred in Denver (as it does every few years, not just once a decade or so), it would be a mess, but no one would know b/c the media doesn't care about us.

Yeah, why is that?
Whenever I watch the weather channel the western states get a mere moment of recognition while the Northeast, Mid-west, and Southeast spend exceptional amount of time being recognized. This even happens when the weather situations out west are more crucial.

We are too far from the beltway!

I'm sorry I hurt some of your feelings with the title of this thread. I didn't think so many of you would cry about what you consider the "Northeast". I called it that because most people I know around the country consider the BosWash corridor the NE. There's the Amtrak Acela line which is called the NE line that spans for those cities. Does it really matter though? It was a big snow storm and if you are going to nitpick and can't figure out where the snow storm was, then why post? Just to start an argument? Some of you spend so much time arguing about what certain regions are on this site that it simply amazes me. Are people really going to be different when you cross an imaginary border for a region? No.
