  3. my Brother moved to the Tampa area in the fall of 1980...it got into the low 20's more than a few times in the 1980's...
  4. the Decembers with major storms like 2010 and 1960 got a huge start and ended up with over 50" for the season...since 1950 there are 22 winters if you count the 4.7" snowfalls that we got in November 1989 and 2012 that had a 4" or greater storm before January 1st...when NYC gets a 4" or greater storm in December the chances for at least near normal seasonal snowfall is 85% off the top of my head...the three years with below average snowfall did not have another 4" storm the rest of the season... winter.....December storm...total seasonal snowfall...other 4" storms... 1952-53...12/02-03.....4.5"..........15.1"...........................0................ 1957-58...12/03-04.....8.0"..........44.7".....................4.5" 4.5" 7.9" 4.1" 11.8" 1959-60...12/21-22...13.7"..........39.2"....................14.5" 1960-61...12/11-12...15.2"..........54.7"......................9.9" 17.4" 1961-62...12/23-24.....6.2"..........18.1"............................0 1963-64...12/23-24.....6.3"..........44.7"....................12.5" 6.8" 4.9" 1966-67...12/24-25.....7.1"..........51.5"....................12.5" 9.8" 1968-69...12/15..........5.2"..........30.2"....................15.3" 1969-70...12/25-27.....6.8"..........25.6"......................4.0" 1984-85...12/27..........4.8"..........24.1"......................4.1" 4.3" 5.7" 1989-90...11/22-23.....4.7"..........13.4"................................0 1990-91...12/28..........7.2"..........24.9"......................5.0" 8.9" 1993-94...12/29-30.....4.0"..........53.4"......................4.5" 9.0" 12.8" 5.0" 1995-96...12/19-20.....7.7"..........75.6"....................20.2" 7.5" 10.7" 4.5" 4.5" 4.1" 2000-01...12/30........12.0"..........35.0"......................6.0" 5.7" 2002-03...12/06..........6.0"..........49.3"......................5.0" 5.3" 19.8" 4.0" 2003-04...12/05-06...14.0"..........42.6"......................5.8" 5.7" 10.4" 4.0" 2005-06...12/09..........5.8".........40.0".....................26.9" 2008-09...12/19..........4.0".........27.6"......................4.3"...8.3" 2009-10...12/19-20...10.9"..........51.5"....................10.0" 4.2" 20.9" 2010-11...12/26-27...20.0"..........61.9"......................9.1" 4.2" 16.0" 2012-13...11/07-08.....4.7"..........26.1"....................11.4" 4.0" 2013-14...12/14..........5.0"..........57.4".....................6.4" 11.5" 8.0" 4.0" 12.5"
  5. so far December is playing out like 1962 only with more snow...1962 was a very cold month with average snow but above average snow to the south...this year could be a few degrees warmer but with more snow than 1962...
  6. if Christmas is brown we will look back at this storm and say it should have come two weeks later...But if we get more snow and Christmas is white this year will go down as a great two weeks leading up to Christmas...maybe the greatest if the models are correct...

  9. what day of the week was it?...
  10. maybe it was the year before when there was a major storm ending as snow?...Brooklyn got an inch before it ended...
  11. Dec. 15th 1968 NYC got a similar storm...I'm not sure if it was the same set up but it was a storm that got us on the back side...
  12. that fall I built a sled out of two by fours and skis...It was a fast sled and I used it with my kids for the first time the next day...
