this winter wasn't the best (unless your in maine of the ca mountains), neither was last one, but last yr we had the 32" blizzard, this year 30" from 2 main storms 11" and a 14" blizzard, and a few 4" storms.

could've been worse, but maybe next yrs better


The northeast had a nice run with a few storms, for sure.

But the Midwest, Great Lakes, and Ohio Valley have had winter literally stolen from them.

mainly a lurker, but usually there are a few storms to get excited about even if they don't materialize or I get rain. I do not recall being excited for any possibility of a big storm this winter IMBY.

What is shocking to me is how warm the low temps were this year. No sustained cold at any point. VERY high low temps.

Its all relative. NYC may be at or nearing average where 30" in the apps would be like it never snowed.

Agreed. The overall average temp for February and January was well above average.

I'm not a good record keeper PARD. I'd have to ask my neighbor, but we've probably eeeked our way to 20" or just over. But people not at elevation around here have gotten far less. We had more snow then this the winter of 11-12. And honestly, I've loved it.


For reference, I have a good buddy on the spine of the apps in MD who hasn't gotten to 50" this year. That's not even winter where he is.

It seemed like a busy winter precip wise, sure I didn't really get any snowstorms but it just seemed busy to me, we had (2) 3" events, (1) 10" event (1) 5" event and a couple <1", we got quite a few rain storms also.
But again I say is seemed busy, I saw the reality of it all yesterday when I drove past one of our "larger" mountain reservoirs, it was at best estimate 10-12 feet below normal, we really need a good snow pack that gently melts into the watershed to fill that lake up. If nothing happens in the next few weeks, we are going to be in trouble this summer.

I agree with the posters mentioning the active aspect of this winter season. I get that many are disappointed. Yet I have many "likes" about this winter, from a personal perspective - along with a relative few "dislikes".

Topping the list is the savings on my energy bills - followed closely by not having to labor very hard to deal with the meager amount we did get.

I didn't have to buy any ice melt or secure a stash of cinders just to get in my driveway.

I spend some days on the motorcycle and the golf course - always a bonus "out of season".

I didn't have to deal with idiot drivers who can't drive in winter conditions.

I did not have to pump even one tank of gas, in horridly cold and biting conditions.

There were few "how much snow am I going to get IMBY in "wherever, USA" - and almost no "will I have school tomorrow" type posts.

But I didn't get to do any ice-fishing with my buddies and there were no sledding opportunities with the kids in the valley (which could be a good thing on my aging body).

I did track many of the storms that delivered to N MidAtl and NE - satisfying my tracking, albeit not IMBY.

Could it have been "better"? Sure, but it was not (in my book) horrible nor "non existent".

Could not agree more with this post. Been a wonderful winter, there was plenty to track until recently. I have enjoyed this warm winter immensely.

East coast was fairly bleak south of I-80 this winter. Actually, all the way back through the midwest.

Was bleak indeed! I count myself fortunate that I have that finger of 6 to 12 through my back yard. I have myself at 11 for the season. 5 inches came in one shot back in December.

I saw 4 double digit storms, with other small events for 97" so far. The December storm was amazing 4" in 30 minutes, 7" in an hour, 12" in 3 hours. And several powerful 970s lows. All without extreme cold, warm in fact, been a great winter. smile.gif
