It wasn't so bad on Long Island... we only got about 5 inches of snow. Quite manageable.

Five inches!!! Reminds me of my first winter on Mt. Baker in Washington State, 1998-99, when Mt. Baker became officially the snowiest place on Earth. We got maybe a foot of snow in the foothills there, and it did not melt until April...growing up in the Pacific rain coastal lowlands, I had never seen that before...

Is five inches a typical winter for you there, Tink? 

At the moment, we are inundated in our annual Pineapple Express, temp about 40-58*F day and night, torrents of rain courtesy of the jet stream winds coming up to us from the Pacific South Seas.

Five inches has been unusual for the past couple of years, but before that, it was normal to have one or two heavy snowfalls every winter, maybe up to a foot every ten years or so.
