Epic Eastern Storms

We're working on a image gallery in the directory called Epic Eastern Storms:

http://nyskiblog.com/directory/weather-data/epic-storms/

If you can think of great storms (Winter especially, but other seasons ok) and you know the dates post the here. Dates are especially important to find images before "naming" came in. Any info you remember would be cool too.

I'll try to track down the images.

Re: Epic Eastern Storms

Vulcan was epic in many ways. Even the name was great: did you get "Vulcanized?"

I don't recall the exact date but it was in March 2014. Here's my story: http://jonnyjay.blogspot.ca/2014/03/vulcanized.html

Edit: March 12 was the day I drove through Vulcan to get to Vermont.

only the pricks at The Weather Channel name winter storms...So it's all about dates and location..
What was epic in NY could have been a bust  in Vt  or visa a versa..The list could be a mile long..

Re: Epic Eastern Storms

The naming helps me find the data.

I'm most interested in storms that impacted NY VT and QC/ON. Realistically focusing on the history of NYSB, the last ten years.

Jason are you down on the NESIS scale too?  It's interesting to me as it takes population into account.

Peace and Love.

Oddly I can't find much on vulcan.  



I like using the NESIS maps as they are not forecasts but some approximation of reality.

They don't account for elevation, but they still let you know who was in the wheelhouse.

Re: Epic Eastern Storms

Kocin and Ucellenni are the authority when it comes to Eastern snow storms. They wrote the book..Which I have on my coffee table.

The NESIS Scale and table are perfect..They list all of the major storms...

Re: Epic Eastern Storms

I always liked Kocin, he used to be on weather channel. What is he doing now? I never heard of Ucellenni.

Re: Epic Eastern Storms

Kocin is back with NWS..
He was too smart and not good looking enough for TWC

Re: Epic Eastern Storms

why does naming winter storms get mocked so much?  Makes it easy to refer to.
