There are numerous mentions about it in the Christmas Countdown thread. It was all up and down the East Coast from Saturday into early Sunday. Here in Massachusetts the snow ranged from an inch or two near the coast to more than a foot farther west, and it was a heavy wet snow that brought down a lot of trees and power lines. Some folks won't be getting their power back until the end of the week. We were lucky---we only lost ours for about 24 hours, but we had no heat, so we spent last night in a motel. It's very, very rare for these areas to get snow before Halloween---we usually don't see that much snow until November or December.

I didn't know it had already been discussed, as I only put the news channel on last night. As you say, very unusual and thankfully you are ok. The UK was supposed to get snow the end of October, but so far nothing down my way. I'll check out the other threads now. Thanks.

"UK" must have been a typo---they meant "US"!

We got about 6 inches here outside of Philadelphia. LOTS of large trees/branches were lost... we had a major, major leak in our bedroom, too. My uncle brought his bucket truck and my husband and he got up there and shoveled the roof off... I was so nervous!

Here's an article with a state-by-state summary of the effects of the early snowstorm.

Can't believe how early the snow is coming this year. I live in the Midwest and so far our temps are seasonal but they're predicting a bad winter with more snow fall than we had last year. You know what that means??? SNOW DAYS!!!

This snow storm was big enough to be mentioned in the news in Switzerland! I am very sorry for everyone who has to live with damages on houses, cares and other things!

Sounds like it was very bad, but glad you are all ok though. I don't know how the UK would've coped with something like this, we were so unprepared last year. I think we almost ran out of salt to grit the roads! Crazy! Let's hope the country bucks up it's ideas for this year, if we get any snow that is.
