Personally Iím preparing for a lot of 33* cold rains. Also, letís keep this in mind...we are long overdue for a major ice event. Iím thinking this is the year for that.

33 and rain? Heck, try 27 and rain. I'll never get over that storm. 27 degrees and pouring rain for what felt like hours.  ::sick::

It's so bad, we mock winter with our deliberate and obvious jinx attempts. By telling winter it will produce, obviously knowing we're jinxing it, winter will call our bluff and we'll get slammed, purely out of spite. We'll get dumped on this winter.

The Old Man Winter will do what he wants, we have no say in it, so we might as well have a little fun with it.

76-77,77-78 and 84-85 were awesome here. I don't know which was worse. We missed the entire month of school in Jan 77 and snow covered the ground from the 4th of Jan until the first of Feb. The roads were also covered as big time cold and another snow every 4-5 days the entire month was like clockwork. We had anywhere from 5-10 inches of snow on the ground virtually the entire month. 77-78 was more spread out but we had several big snows and missed a bunch of days. Including 2 different snows that put us out a week at a time plus at least 2 more snows where we missed a couple of days each time. 84-85 I was out of school, I was about 20 years old and the end of jan and feb were brutal. We recorded snow and brutal cold the month of feb. One 8 inch snowfall followed by extreme cold and more snow. I think Jan 77 and Feb 85 was the most epic I have seen, hard to say which was worse. I would take anything similar and do cartwheels. That 1 week last year reminded me of that time it just didn't last near as long nor have the number of snows. But at least we had 2 decent snows in a weeks time that stayed on the ground for about 7 days. ::popcorn:: ::snowman::

In Southern KY the most epic winters were the late 70s, 84-85, 2010-11, and 2014-15. 

2014-15 was very close to being epic in much of TN and it was in the Tiptonville/Union City area into Kentucky.  It isn't that common to see two major winter storms producing 1 foot or more of snow in one winter, plus that February and Early March was quite cold.  Some areas along US 62 in Kentucky recorded over 40 inches of snow during the winter of 2014-15. 

That 6-week span of 1984-85 would of be awesome to live in.  I was born just a few years late.  That was some of the most intense cold/snow looking back at the records that a winter can offer.

I can imagine myself sitting in a reclining chair in 2074 and telling my grandkids how much it used to snow during the magnificent winters of the 2000s and 2010s.  ::rofl::

In southeast KY the winters of 1993-94 & 95-96 were somewhat similar to 84-85.  Perhaps Mt. Pinatubo had an influence on the bitter cold winter of 93-94.  London Ky. recorded their all-time record low up to that point (I believe it was -26).  A snow of epic proportions in January buried the central and eastern parts with 12-24" of snow, and Interstate 75 was closed from Covington to the Tennessee border.  The Arctic outbreak that followed kept the snow on the ground for weeks.  1995-96 was also a winter with plenty of snow, sometimes on the ground for nearly a week at a time when another snowfall would add even more accumulation.  I remember piles of snow in parking lots lasting weeks because warm spells were infrequent, and snow kept falling.  After 95-96, winters were blowtorch city until 02-03, when we had a marginally cold winter, but snowfall wasn't excessive.  From that point on, we had to wait until '09-'10 to see a winter that even had a decent stretch of below normal temperatures.

At least that's how I remember it, as I sit in my rocking chair reminiscing with my Red Bull.  (That's how we Gen X'ers chill out).

Snow cover continues to run above normal in Canada, and LR models show it deepening further, especially central/eastern areas.  Can't be a bad thing for winter weather weenies.

Snow here is nothing but luck. I thought we were past this..... Cold Winter, Warm Winter, Dry Winter, Wet Winter, it all averages out about the same. Forecast 3-4 days out not 3-4 months :) Climatology wins
