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).

I'll be 94, so the weather will probably be happening about 6 feet above me.

To enjoy things in life that are good, you first must endure things that suck!

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

At least we have a better chance of seeing snow than winning either jackpot from Mega Millions or Powerball.   ::snow::

NOAA is out with their forecast which is mostly for average temperatures and precipitation for our neck of the woods and above average precipitation along and south of I-20 and along and east of I-81. 

They are suggesting some blowtorching going on in the Northern US into Canada and across the Plains and the Western US.
