Record snowfall in Boston

Early snowfall blankets much of northeast US.

30 Oct 2020 — Several inches of snow fell across much of the northeastern U.S. on Friday, accumulating on lawns, fouling roads and inspiring social media posts with a mock “snowpocalypse” theme.

The National Weather Service said Boston set an October snowfall record with 3.5 inches (8.89 cm), breaking the previous record of 1.1 inches (2.79 cm) set on Halloween in 2005.

  1. Mongolia, 2020-10-31: Dzud (terrible winter) and minus 50 degrees at night.
    It is always winter in Mongolia. The horns of the Gunan cattle are hardening in the freezing cold.(…)
    Herders are also cautioned to wear warm clothing, a second hat, not far from their homes, and a fire extinguisher.
    I would like to warn you to be careful, as 80 percent of the soums (districts) are in a state of snow and dzud (terrible winter).
    If you don’t pay attention, warnings from others will not help. This week, the Ider, Tes and Otgon river valleys will have minus 50 at night. Uvs Lake depression, Khuren delta, Kherlen, Khalkh river basin and Dariganga steppe will reach minus 38-43 degrees at night.
    In the remote Gobi-Altai and Uvs, the truck was stuck in the snow, and even in the Sergelen area of ​​Tuv province, the Land was created to go through hardships.

  2. I grew up in southern MA (South Attleboro, on the RI border) and spent a good many years of my adult life in the Boston area… NEVER remember seeing snow before Thanksgiving!

    Add to this the silly recommendation that people who want to have family gatherings for Thanksgiving or Christmas should have them OUTDOORS???

    • hmm yeah outside would be SO good for catching colds flu and then having a covid panic..
      still anyone trying that is sure going to be aware its NOT warming;-)
