Near record warm November...check
Record cold December?
I saw an interesting blog entry from the local TV station (KMIZ) tonight. They frequently do a superb job of keeping the public updated with any potential weather threat as early as they can. This particular entry caught my attention with the words "colder than average month, and very active as well".

This reminds me of the last significant snow event we experienced here in Fulton. It was November 30 - December 1, 2006. Fulton officially recorded 14.2" during that period. Interestingly enough, I was watching the weather that day (no school that day obviously), when I saw an advertisement for CoCoRaHS on the local CBS station, it was the first I had heard of it.
Here is the great write up the NWS in St. Louis made on the storm.
They added an amazing satellite pic from the MODIS polar orbiting satellite that shows the grandeur of this awesome storm. OSNW3, looking at your data, you managed to squeeze 1.1" out of the system.
