Wow, I don't remember all that snow in SEMI where I was living then, just winter-like temps. Gonna have to look up storm data to see what brought all that so early in the season?

LOL. No snow, just cold as heck. I just threw that picture up as thought of how cold it was for trick or treaters that year.

EDIT: I actually just checked. The morning low was 19°, but in the afternoon, it jumped up to 50°, so it really wasn't that cold on the evening of the 31st.

There were even snow flurries reported in the northern suburbs of Atlanta on Sunday morning. Nothing here IMBY though.

But I certainly enjoyed the taste of Detroit-like weather to remind me of home (not!). It was one of the coldest October days ever down here as temps didn't get much above 40 until very late in the day when the stratocumulus clouds finally mixed out. 

But now, things are back to normal for the foreseeable future (Sunny and temps in the 70s).

Few October stats IMBY

- Finished the month +4.7 degrees above normal, last 7 days really chewed away at the positive anomalies 

- 22nd month of the last 26 to post a + anomaly

- First freeze didn’t occur until the 29th (31 degrees)

It was the third warmest October on record at YYZ. 

Mean temperature was 55.9F for the month, which is way above the average of 49.0F. Total rainfall was 2.28" vs. the average of 2.44". Coldest night was only 35.0F making it one of the latest freezes on record as YYZ has yet to hit 32.0F. Though however, the suburbs of Toronto have already gone below or hit the freezing mark back in October (urban heat island effect). 

Interestingly enough, when considering the top 5 warmest October's on record, the following winter snowfall is quite perplexing; 

2007: 91.6"

1947: 58.9"

2017: ?

1963: 45.3"

1971: 74.2"

Average: 45.2"

Well lets see, lol!
