Preposterous Peter.

The Blizzard of 1978 was worse than Nemo, I was there, and most agree. This storm was not as bad as some of the weather folks thought, good thing too.

Bain Capital and Comcast would love you to further boost the ratings of the silly Weather Channel. Every time they sneeze, they mention climate change. Not so much Ozone anymore though ;)

Sometimes, you get a winter where the jetsam and tropics align and Noreasters happen. Many times, they occur in particular regions off the coast, and get fed from the ocean. Sometimes, they move further inland.

Some records broken in Some areas were old, 1988. Some records from 35 years ago remain intact. I'll just bet some records from the 1700's and 1800's never made it to the record books. We just didn't have as many anal people back then.
