Sticking out your tongue to catch snowflakes amid the backdrop of daffodils in front of Fox Hall, holding hands with Christine?

I was mind blown to see snow in Oct 2002. Couldn't believe it. And then similarly in 2003. 

Columbus day weekend?  Not sure what year it was but was at my grandfather's in southern quebec.. it was raining and changed to snow rather quickly.. by supper had a couple inches and woke up to over a foot of snow... we drove around and about 10 miles from his place had a couple inches.. hes in a high spot... I think there were flakes reported down here though that day

The Oct 2002 and 2003 snows both happened on the 23rd coincidentally.

The 2003 event was fairly notable. Just driving up 128 when you got to the Dedham hills....must have been at least double what the lower elevations had near the Neponset and Charles River basins.

Yep, all 3 were true in 2010-2011.

As I said first call last call. Feeling it but obviously I have no clue just seems familiar.  Maybe we can flip Feb 11 our way as well.

If it happens on 10/30 vs 11/2, winter is shot to hell. :( 

11/2 ain't happening James until Ditty is long gone.

If we can do 10/11 but extend it through Feb this time...oh my.

That would eclipse 1996 and 2015.

Well of course we won’t have 3 KUs in 3 weeks but just the prospect of a peak season favorable pattern that doesn’t vanish when the calendar flips to Feb is intriguing. I mean, you can run 10/11 again and not have as much snow but it would be nice for a good pattern not to break and stare at the monitors everyday to see when it comes back...always 10-15 days away again.

Nice. Wish I still had my pics and knew what the cloud was back then. Boxing day in CNJ was nuts and then in dxr for the month of Jan was euphoric. My mini version of EMA 2015.

Just a normal winter with storms and rumors of storms will be nice as well

I had 42 inches on my shed roof and 38 on the ground at peak depth in 11 and it was heavy. Roof and barn collapse city. We had a thread just for that. First time I ever roof raked in my life.

I remember my doggie being 2 and full of energy back in 2010-11.   She thankfully is still with us but an old dog now.  And living urban at the time, I’d take her on walks on the sidewalk.  Snow banks were too big for her to climb onto do complete her business...I went one of those winters.

That winter was nothing to write home about up here.

One of my favorite winters 2010-11.  Hit 40” depth, 160-170” total snow, many upslope events, several big synoptic events (27” March 2011 was biggest event), 330”+ at the ski area.  We had a fun February thundersnow event that dropped like 8” in a quick 6 hour system.

Looks like here we were done after 02/08 and finished avg according to my chart, But it does not look right to me, I think we did better then that.

Yeah if it was big up here and big in SNE, I’d imagine your area had to do well too, but who knows.  I just remember a very active winter from Nov - March.  February I remember did melt in the second half of the month but then we recovered and then some in the early March event.
