A number of New Yorkers were shocked to wake up to a small amount of snow on Sunday. Most of the Hudson Valley woke up to a dusting or a few inches of snow on Sunday.

However, parts of the upper Hudson Valley actually received over a foot of "surprise" snow Friday into Saturday!

"Everything comes together in a situation like this, to cause a localized heavy snow event over a rather small geographical area. The higher elevations saw in excess of ONE FOOT of snow from this difficult to predict event." Hudson Valley Weather stated. "Guidance suggested that a coating to 2 inches was likely in eastern Columbia county… but the actual result was dramatically different. The combination of available moisture, cold NW wind in just the correct direction, resulted in elevation enhanced snowfall. Part of what makes the Hudson Valley a unique area to experience unique weather events."

Below are snowfall totals, according to the National Weather Service

LOOK: 50 famous memes and what they mean

Just when you've grasped the meaning of one hilarious meme, it has already become old news and replaced by something equally as enigmatic. Online forums like Tumblr, Twitter, 4chan, and Reddit are responsible for a majority of meme infections, and with the constant posting and sharing, finding the source of an original meme is easier said than done. Stacker hunted through internet resources, pop culture publications, and databases like Know Your Meme to find 50 different memes and what they mean. While the almost self-replicating nature of these vague symbols can get exhausting, memes in their essence can also bring people closer together—as long as they have internet access.
