  1. I thought this might be a good thread while we wait on Old Man Winter to unleash his hounds. Links and personal accounts welcome. I am putting this up. I'll work in the evening over the weekend to add a few of my own personal favorites. The ideas here is to get stories from all of the state.
  2. Top Five Snowstorms all time Harwich, MA Cape Cod, MA 1.) Blizzard of 2005 (January 22-23 2005) - 35" 2.) Blizzard of 2015 (January 26-28th 2015) - 30.4" 3.) February Snowstorm ( February 25-26th 1999) - 24" 4.) Boxing Day Snowstorm of 2004 (December 27-28th 2004) - 18" 5.) Nemo (February 7-9 2013) - 17"
  3. So as a few days have gone by after our fairly Historic Snowstorm (and as we try to figure out these videos with over 30" of compact to decipher if there were 40" Totals missed), it's time for me to talk about the one thing I Can contribute to this board - Historical context after an event. Since you don't want ME forecasting your town! Yes the NESIS scale is out for the Blizzard of 2015, and it's a bit low. Don't worry, I already laughingly complained to Paul as I did for the Blizzard of 2013 which missed ALL of the 30" amounts in central CT. But we all know what these were like in every aspect. So, why not, Really rank what I think were the 12 most Impressive events in Northeast History. - Blizzard of 2015 - Blizzard of 2013 - Duel Blizzards of 2010 (Mid-Atlantic) - Blizzard of 2006 - Blizzard of 2005 - PDII of 2003 - April Fool's Day Blizzard of 1997 - Blizzard of 1996 - Superstorm of 1993 - Blizzard of 1978 - 100 Hour Storm of 1969 - Great White Hurricane of 1888 It is unbelievable to think that 9 of the 12 listed here are since the Great Snow Era started in 1992 with a Blizzard of its own which broke the Worcester Record at the time. One would think this is wrong and that we just don't have the data of previous storms. Though I have studied the Great storms of the 60's and 40's and others of the 80's and PDI; and none of them really deserve to be in the Highest echelon of storms in terms of widespread 20"+ amounts and memorable aspects form what I can see, but please tell me differently (Will and Jerry!). Here are 10 Aspects to Rank These on. 1. Overall Size of Swath 2. Total area of 30" Amounts 3. Intensity / Wind / Damage / Coastal Damage 4. Highest Totals (1888, 1993, and 1978 had 50" amounts) 5. How Major Cities were affected (30" amounts in the city of Boston in the Blizzard of 2015 are impressive) 6. Impressiveness of the system and Surprises (April Fool's Day in 1997 wins this since a 30" Snowstorm in April is Unreal. And 2015's Length was surprising.) 7. It's Deformation Band or "Death Band" 8. NESIS Scale 9. Length 10. Variety of Jackpot Zones (1993 was very impressive here) Impact on life can not count since we are Far better equipt to handle storms now, and predict them, which brings into a hole article someone could do Entitled "How bad would the Blizzard of 1978 be if it happened next weekend?". Also, it's just good or bad luck wen they happen, such as the Blizzard of 2006 being nothing since it occurred on a Sunday, even though it gave NYC 2 Feet which should have been paralyzing. Something that was done once by Dr. Zelinski, and needs to be examined more, are storms that missed us that WOULD have and SHOULD have been in the Top ranks. Just last season there were 2 storms with absolutely Incredible buzzsaws that missed us by 100-200 miles. What Nor'Easters just didn't get the spot right, and would be worthy of the pantheon?
