Thundersnow[edit]

Locals called it the Thundersnow. Ask anybody from Buffalo. User:THALLECK 24:14, 7 October 2012 — Preceding unsigned comment added by 216.54.60.248 (talk)

Aphid[edit]

Where did the name "Aphid" come from? ~MDD4696 06:49, 20 October 2006 (UTC)

I was actually just about to add that bit now -- it's the National Weather Service's official name for it (see Historic Lake Effect Snow Storm of October 12-13, 2006 which should actually be in references rather than external links). It looks like the media have (almost?) settled on "October Surprise" but they seem to keep sort of changing it, and it looks to me as though they are still feeling about for a proper name. At the time I started the article, The noaa name seemed the most official of those out there. Jskelly 17:59, 20 October 2006 (UTC)

Redirect from October Surprise Storm[edit]

There was a duplicate of this article at October Surprise Storm - pretty much all the same information was there, but written independently of this one. I've redirected that article here. ATren 06:22, 7 January 2007 (UTC)

Currently Editing[edit]

I am currently editing the article, I put the tag in place. Should be done in a few hours, will be adding sources, more data, etc. Feel free to fix grammar, spelling and anything else. If you have more data, please contact me or just add it in. Theonlysilentbob 22:26, 15 September 2007 (UTC)

Mix of metric/imperial units[edit]

This article contains metric measure of temperature in Celsius, but imperial measure of snow depth in Inches/Feet. This is a little confusing. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.74.127.201 (talk) 21:24, 2 November 2007 (UTC)

self-references!!![edit]

Hi. Apparently, the list of references includes wikipedia mirrors and wikinews articles. These are considered self-references. I can't fix this myself right now because removing those would leave areas unreferenced, so I suggest using refernces that wikinews cites, for example. Thanks. ~AH1(TCU) 00:23, 6 November 2007 (UTC)

Trimmed down meterological details[edit]

I've trimmed down the detailed weather forcasting details from the week before the storm. This level of detail isn't necessary in an encyclopedia article, and it's quite confusing to those who are not weather experts. External links and references can document the storm in its full meteorological glory. :-) ATren (talk)

Bot report : Found duplicate references ![edit]

In "Aphid"&redirect=no&oldid=227910620 the last revision I edited, I found duplicate named references, i.e. references sharing the same name, but not having the same content. Please check them, as I am not able to fix them automatically :)
