It's snowing from the nation's capital up into northern New England. Much like the snow that came through Denver ealier this week, this is not good news, since the trees are still in full leaf.
The snow adds a lot of weight to the trees, and there will undoubtedly be numerous trees and limbs down.
New York's Central Park has recorded just under two inches of snow so far, breaking a record. The city that never sleeps has never seen more than an inch of snow in October.
In fact, there are only two measurable snowfalls on record for New York. One was 0.5" on October 21, 1952. The other was 0.8" on October 30, 1925.
