December got started off early with multiple snowfalls, light to moderate events but good for Dec, which sometimes does not produce much snow, plus cold. Dec gets a A-

January I give a B, was mainly one big storm but was double digit snowfall for me and makes Jan an above norm snowfall month like Dec.  The extended cold spell Dec to early Jan was noteworthy
It did take its toll on me though, cold enough to snow is good enough for me. Record cold for a couples days would of been enough for me.

Not much to say about Feb winter wise. Did get a moderate snow event in between 60 degree days and near 80 soon after. That makes Feb a D.

March was stormy but very little actual snow accumulation here until the last event. That saved March. It was an eventful month but more stormy/destructive than snowy until the save at the end. The fact that someone got 20" doesn't take away from the fact I got over 8" in late March which turns out to be pretty uncommon by that point. Most of the bigger snowfalls that late were before all of NY was fully urbanized like now. Take those out and you have only a handful of storms to produce in that range. I give March a B.

That would avg out to a B- winter..but since the total snowfall was above normal and even when events didn't pan out IMBY, it still was a supply of potential events to keep thing interesting I upgraded it to a B.

Reading Isotherms winter forecast grade I laughed at three things.

1. Whenever he typed B——n it autocorrected to Red Sox Suck
2. Long Island’s Islip airport doubled the amount of snow coming in with 61.3”
3. Long Island beat Red Sox Suck in total snowfall this year Very Happy

Subject to upward revision

So far a B+, the final grade to be determined on April 15

At the end of February this was a D+ to C - winter. A good December, a white Christmas all positives. An OK January with about average snowfall neutral a record-breaking warm February with almost no snow a huge negative.

A fantastic March with 44 inches, with a solid deep snow cover throughout the entire month up until the last 2 days. Throw in 5.8 inches so far in April now bringing the seasonal snow total to 83.1 inches and the days with snow cover to 67 and this winter has now become a B+.

If we get one more decent April snow it could become an A-.

The only thing preventing this from becoming an A and what might have been a historic season was that God awful strecth from Mid January through the end of February. And that was one sickening stretch. It could never be an A even if we had two feet of snow next weekend. Well maybe then.

I’m up to a B+. With 70” on the coast even after a record torch February I’d be a laughingstock to give it anything less
