Briefing on the final stats of the snow in the Northeast.
Saturn was indeed a major snowstorm, no doubt about that!
Many houses were damaged by winds, snow, coastal flooding and worst being beach erosion, thousands and thousands of dollars was the price tag from this storm...

As the season comes to and end in my area...
This one stands as the second snowiest one with 41" (~3.5') of snow recorded.
I began keeping track of winter storms since 2008.
The 2010-2011 season hit 70", as in national NCDC records it's in the top three snowiest seasons for the area.
HURRICANE SEASON 2013
Note: I regards to the hurricane season, I'll be working on a new blog later doing some explanations. But there are my (range) numbers, my "exact" ones will be on the new blog as well.
Named Tropical Cyclones: 16-20 (39 mph or greater max. sustained winds)
Hurricanes: 6-10 (74 mph or greater max. sustained winds
Major Hurricanes: 2-4" (Winds of 111 mph or greater)
I also think that 1-2 of those major hurricanes could achieve intensities higher than mid level category 4 (145 mph+) into Category 5 (160 mph+).
It's possible to have a category 5 this year... last time we had one was in 2007, Felix. Igor 2010 got very close (155 mph).
