“Is it me or is every snowfall recently breaking some kind of record??” asks Ralph. “Syracuse averages 123” of snow a year, so for this to break is pretty interesting.” http://www.erh.noaa.gov/bgm/climate/syr/syr_normals.shtml

    I attended SU in the 1960’s, and snow anytime from Oct. to April is pretty normal. When I went back for a reunion on June 1st we had a snow flurry!

    I was recovering from a head injury back in Winter of 1984 at Upstate Medical Center…and I can remember all the snow. It wasn’t that much…but just sayin’.
