Measurable amounts of snowfall in October...was it an omen of what's to come?

"Measurable amounts of snowfall in October are not a predictor of an exceptionally snowy fall or winter season!" Seeley wrote. However, he also pointe out within the statistics, some extremely challenging winters in Minnesota that did begin with significant snowfalls in October.
