It just didn/t happen this go'round.
Despite the news media/s insatiable appetite for sensationalism...heavy snowfall does not a blizzard make.
The only station coming even close to blizzard conditions was Islip airport on Long Island...NY but alas...they came up ~78" short on the 180" duration requirement.
The three-hour duration clock starts at 0208z (9:08 PM EST) when the visibilily fall below 1/4 SM at KISP and the wind begins to honk above 30 knots.
