That yr Orange County ranged from 90-100".. Bring it on! :)

I lived in Highland Mills that winter and I received 93"..

It truly is amazing how from Harriman to Woodbury ( Central Valley, Highland Mills) & Monroe jackpot EVERY single time. True def. of a microclimate. Its no secret in Orange County..

A weenie observer there?

In all seriousness, it might have to do with the relative surrounding terrain too. There are areas west of me at similar elevation, but definitely get less snow overall due to downsloping.

My guess would be upslope off the Hudson Highlands & Schnemunk Mtn ( Highest pt in the county)..
