Default October 29, 2011

October 29, 2011 featured a storm in the New York area that was disruptive for the same reasons; up to four inches of wet snow on fully leafed-out trees. Maybe not as much snow, but the denser populations and greater tree growth adjacent to roads did a lot of damage.





Oriole Place and Meadowlark in Rye Brook, NY on October 11, 2011.

Buffalo, NY experienced a massive lake effect snowstorm with 2 feet of lake effect snow on October 13th, 2006. Hundreds of thousands were without power for weeks. Early season snows are never a good combo in heavily populated areas.

Another shocking early-season snow was in upstate and central SC on November 1, 2014. Some places west of Columbia got up to 4 inches of snow! What's even more impressive is the averages there are a warm 72/46 that day.

Got some snow here in North Idaho, (near Coeur d'Alene). All gone in the lowlands but is sticking a bit in the hills. Will probably be melted by the weekend. Did come with some cold, so had to bring in the fountain and statues.

No, earliest accumulation is 0.5" on October 15, 1876 (Central Park station).

Even the southern Midwest can beat that...within the age of global warming, no less. 0.3" in Omaha on September 29, 1985, 0.2" in Kansas City on October 14, 2018(!), even Evansville (Cfa climate, quite southern) managed 0.9" on October 19, 1989.

While I lived few years in Montana I also lived 5 years in NY/NJ area. You cannot possibly take anything those people say seriously, least of all when weather is concerned.


That being said, there's a small part of NY state that gets a real nice lake effect - around Buffalo, NY.




And, because it's NewYork, any tiny weather event gets blown out of proportion




If you're in doubt, just consider the absurd fact that these are the people who consider -25 'F to be arctic cold




When it was sub-zero for few hours, people were sharing photos left and right standing below an on-street thermometer/timer "bracing -1 'F frigid cold" for 2 minutes


First half of my first winter there was very funny, till I realized they were actually serious...
