Harry Enten's "Has the snow finally stopped?"

This article and figure from Harry Enten (reporting for fivethrityegiht) provides informative and horrifying data on the median last day of measurable snow in different cities in America. (Personally, I find it horrifying because my median last day of measurable snow isn't until early April). This article provides easy-to-understand examples of percentiles, interquartile range, use of archival data, and median.

Portland and Dallas can go suck an egg.
