The Great October Snowstorm
Snow totals from the recent storm ranged from less than 1 inch to more than 20 inches.
Great pumpkins, Halloween decorations, and trees still in leaf were covered with up to 30 inches of heavy, wet snow in parts of the Northeast on the 30th. The weight of the snow brought down trees, branches and power lines, leaving 3 million customers in the dark. Daily life was interrupted once again by a major storm in the Northeast - a meteorological ‘hat-trick’ starting with Hurricane Irene in August, Tropical Storm Lee in September and now, the Great October snowstorm.
