Two Feet of Snow in October!

Ah, how I wish I were in Buffalo today, getting socked by lake effect snow. Brings me right back to home in the good old UP of Michigan. Soon we will be getting some snow in NH as well, but we don't get blizzards out here like we did in the UP. I still remember one snowstorm that stranded hundreds of cars along US 41 for at least a whole day.

By the way, if climate change reduces the severity and frequency of snowstorms like this in the large metropolitan areas of the Northeastern US, do the financial savings and reduced lives lost (how many people die from heart attacks every year shoveling snow?) count as a benefit?
