    What Are Your AMWX/ Eastern, etc. Snow Stats?

    I wasn't far from Towson. I lived in Lutherville at the time and that 28" total that I saw was in fact Towson, so 28-29" sounds about right. And I think the total included the 3" from round 1.

    Yeah it really was incredible. What made it even more spectacular was the way that we arrived at that total. The storm in December 2009 had about 18-24", but even then I had a feeling that it wouldn't be our only HECS of the season. But never did I imagine that we'd get two more historic storms back to back, which we did in early February. That 12 day period from 1/30 to 2/10 delivered around 55" total where I lived. It would be impressive just about anywhere outside of a mountain, but for the mid-Atlantic it was completely unreal.

    What Are Your AMWX/ Eastern, etc. Snow Stats?

    I've lived in the mid-Atlantic for nearly all my life (just north of the Baltimore beltway and west of I-83), and I'll probably be in New England depending on where my job places me, but I'll share my mid-Atlantic stats anyways. All of this is from 2000 onwards. Largest one time snowfall: 27" (January 2016) or possibly 28" from PDII but that's based on the nearest reported total I'm aware of Deepest snow depth in a season: ~36" (Feb 2010) Largest seasonal snowfall (entire season): 85" (2009-10) Smallest seasonal snowfall (entire season): 5" (2001-02) All time snowfall Average (99-00 to 18-19): 27.9" (looks a tad high for the area, probably because of the good years and small sample size)

    Thanks... I shared the news in the banter thread just before my move and actually had a chance to meet up with nw balt and losetoa on my last day in Maryland.

    A lot of Miller As and hybrids do that, which is why the mid-Atlantic competes well with SNE when it comes to the top storms on record. Baltimore's top 10 list looks pretty good.

    I just moved to New England a week ago, and with all the severe weather the mid-Atlantic has gotten in the last few days, I'm thinking maybe the timing wasn't the best for me

    I'm not going to moralize against people who climb Everest. Instead of boycotting the idea, maybe the sherpas should be tipped nicely. Otherwise they may not have any work at all.

    Yep, and then after he moved to North Carolina they enjoyed a number of good winters (for them at least).

    Even a few hundred feet can help a lot, and of course the ocean is the biggest factor. The northern and NW parts of the state get the classic New England winters, while PVD and the coast are milder.

    For years that has been my biggest (irrational) fear of moving north... that once I get there I'll get skunked. I hope Zucker stayed for at least a few years afterwards since the following winters were much better.

    Yeah I figured 2015 was an extreme anomaly... I recall something like 4 HECS in the span of a month. Unless we God forbid get another stretch like the 80s to early 90s, I'm feeling pretty good about the winters here. If we're somehow due for more -NAO blocking in the winter months (which has been lacking in recent years), that'll be even better.

    A bit further north. I booked a few Airbnb’s in Massachusetts for the next few weeks as I search for apartments, but I’m going to try finding a place around Cumberland. Side note, apparently this area was in the jackpot in Feb 1978.

    Are you still living in Hartford? Maybe we can meet up some time if you're around, once I get settled.

    I spent my first night in RI... seems like a very nice area so far.

    I'm going to be looking around Cumberland Hill.. seems like a very nice location. I have a feeling that next winter will be a good one. I was just going to say, now that I'll be up north, I'm suddenly going to love Miller Bs and dread the thought of a 2009-10 repeat. I was actually lucky enough to go up to New England for the Feb 2013 blizzard (commonly called Nemo) back when AmyB still lived in Mass and I stayed at her place (total was 27"), but the rest of the time I've been on the outside looking in. I'm really looking forward to all of it. The RI beaches, Boston, the GTGs with you guys, not to mention the skiing.
