Snowed over by November.

Bing Crosby might have dreamed of a white Christmas, but last year, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, it was Thanksgiving that was blessed with a cornucopia of snow. The agency reports that during last November, 6 million square miles of North America were blanketed is snow, surpassing the 1973 record of 5.1 million square miles; 9.2 million square miles of Eurasia were covered by snow, breaking the record of 7.8 million square miles set in 1973. This is the most snow registered in North America and Eurasia during a November since scientists began to use weather satellites to measure snowcover in 1966.
