my condolences regarding your father's & aunt's passing

my dad grew up in the lower NE close to Northeast High & his back in the day weather nugget was that "our biggest snowstorms occur in March", technically not true however the late 40's thru early 60's did see significantly snowier than average MAR's

Thank you for the kind thoughts- it is appreciated!

I have to run the numbers but I highly suspect the recent March's are also well above normal snowfalls compared to past decades. It does seem in our current climate change cycle that we generally are moving to warmer falls and colder springs.....

There was 17" on the ground with an AM low of 3 degrees on the 25th 0.49" of ZR and eventually plain rain fell that day -the high for the day was 39 degrees the next day the 26th saw 2.02" of rain with the temp soaring to 56 degrees dwindling the snow pack to only 4" on the morning of the 27th

 

In Lower Bucks that big cutter & 2" of rain completely wiped out a very healthy snow pack. That winter was so good that even when we lost we ending up winning as the melted snow & heavy rain created so much runoff that the subsequent flash freeze created the best sledding conditions ever. The frozen runoff never melted until the middle of March.

I remember it well! I had to walk about about 1.5 miles from my house to Archbishop Ryan HS and we crossed a field behind the football/soccer fields to get to the back of the school. I remember the non-stop solid as a rock snow cover and the care we had to take with our Catholic school shoes on to not fall on our ass!

Before we moved to Lower Bucks in 1976 I grew up on Chalfont Drive just a couple of blocks down from Ryan
