Last week the internet was abuzz with predictions of October snow that could total up in feet for certain parts of Western North America. The Atmospheric River, which was actually the remnants of Typhoon Songda, has come and gone leaving much of the continent wetter than when it arrived.
How did the first winter storm of 2016/17 it live up to its predictions?
