When we first moved here almost 17 years ago, we received a chit load more snow, didn't have enough room for snow storage but that problem has been taking care of.
I need a winter like my first winter in this current house 10 years ago, we had so much snow here, literally shoveled the roof off 3 times that winter, same as you, ran out of storage space, had 5ft piles next to the walkway. Ever since I got the kioti with snow pusher we havent had a storm with more then 10" kind of a bummer because I really want to see what I can do with 2ft of the white stuff.

Since we've had the Mahindra 4540 with a plow, we seem to get one or two storms per winter that dump close to 24 inches on us. The 4540 walks through it without any problems, no chains.

The only problem is we get a big snowfall and a week later it's 50 out. ==c

Sounds like the winter of 2013-2014 here.

Looking at a few long range weather models and it sure looks like a cold blast is heading towards the northeast and mid-atlantic during the last week of October, Some of the models runs indicate some lake effect snow starting up in upstate NY and PA, with flurries / snow showers from a smaller storm in NE PA, NWNJ, and north of NYC, that means colder temps regardless of snow.

Yes, we here on the left coast are suddenly getting a bit of a chill, but the center of the country has a big Canadian high dropping down that covers all of the midwest. It will be making its way eastward soon. Button up.

We had 77 today with more rain last night, we'll take some cooler weather.

It’s been in the 40s for a long time and tons of rain. Tonight it’s supposed to turn to snow and snow forecast every day next week.

We've been in the -10's C all week (mid teens F), we got a few inches of snow last week, and it looks like it'll be here for winter now, might see the grass again about mid April. On Monday there were huge flocks of geese headed south, which solidified my assumption that winter is here early and for good.

On the upside we've had a beautiful fall, this is the first year in a long time where the farmers were done early and don't have swaths buried under the snow.

La Nina they say, so hopefully a tough winter in Montana! There's been a lot of activity around here since people suddenly got tired of the city life this spring! A lot of the newcomers want to know how cold it gets here. Well, this year, the last snowfall was June 30, a little early, as we usually have measurable snow sometime in July, and the first snowfall of this winter was August 30 - also a little early by about a week. One to two feet and subzero nights for this weekend.

There's kind of a pattern where coastal folks come around for a summer or two, then a for-sale sign appears and you don't see them again. The saying goes, "Thank God for winter, or this place would be crowded too."

The heavier snow bands, known as snow squalls, can cause sudden reductions in visibility and a quick, slippery covering of snow on the roadways. These travel hazards will be most likely to occur downwind of the Great Lakes and may impact stretches of interstates 75, 81 and 90.

The big part is over me. So far this fall is starting out like 2013, which was the hardest winter we had in a long time.

Our winds were up to 58 mph today. Tree across the road about 1/4 mile away and probably many more.
