    It's hard to explain but a snow event at the end of winter just seems much more plausible than a snow event at the end of summer. The atmosphere is only 2 months removed from the deep freeze in May while the atmosphere and hemisphere is 6 months removed from the cold in Early October. I just feel the October storm is apples to Oranges when compared to a May snowfall. Not to mention the October storm had nearly 2 feet of incredible low ratio snow. As a side note, Whiteface Mountain got 36 inches of snow the last week of May in 2013. I am attaching a graph from Mt Mansfield. Does snow/cold seem more likely in May or October? I'll let you be the judge (make sure to consider the months before each time period). Anyway, its a very interesting topic and I'm glad you brought it up.

    I think the bigger anomaly certainly belongs to the event that was coming out of the warm season. It takes an incredible setup to find adequate cold when there is virtually no arctic snowpack and the Northern Hemisphere just recently came out of 24 hours of daylight and heating (for the previous 4 months). An event in May is certainly noteworthy and rare but it happens in much closer proximity the cold season. The October snowstorm is the top weather event of my lifetime, hands down. Absolutely blew my mind at the time and still does.

    Oh damn, you're including layovers. Yeah, that can make any trip a seemingly never ending nightmare.

    I was hoping youd stop in for this last gasp of winter. I think Hawaii is "only" about 12, (haha not that big of a difference I guess).

    Sunday is starting to get interesting. Right on the cusp of some accumulating snows.

    Those cells look at absolutely ferocious. Warm fronts are no joke this time of year. Chautauqua county about to get pummeled.

    Tornado watches for Wyoming and Livingston. I guess we don’t have any posters from there. If this would have happened during daylight I’d consider chasing.

    That squall line developing over Ohio sure looks juicy. Not sure what it will do with or pitiful atmosphere up here (no real instability to work with) but perhaps overall dynamics will win out. Will be a fun 6 hours or so.

    High res Nam certainly shows an impressive squall line tomorrow night. Would love to see that verify. Nice bowing line segments

    What is the closest small town to you? What is your local NWS office?

    Here is a very off the wall idea, Do helicopters every fly around that area? I have power lines behind my house that are frequently inspected by choppers. The prop wash from them flipped my canoe and tossed it across my yard once. Other than that, there was no other damage.

    I'll be interested to see more pics. If we can rule out vandalism I would consider something like a dust devil. They can causes pretty intense and extremely localized damage.

    That looks like heaven.

    It’s wild here. The winds are absolutely nuts. Only the Lower mountain is open and man oh man is it cold with that wind. Just took two shitty lifts then hiked but we found some knee to thigh deep stuff in the trees! Also saw some great lenticular clouds. Tomorrow will be absolutely amazing.
