Ken Sander of York, Pa., admits it might be selective memory, "but ... it seems to me the Mid-Atlantic is having fewer nor'easters than 30-40 years ago. ... Has the storm track shifted?" The University of Virginia's nor'easter expert, Robert E. Davis, says these powerful winter storms have become fewer, but more severe. In years like this one, more storms take an inland, "continental" route. In other years, more rake the coastline as nor'easters, clobbering us and New England. Davis sees no clear trend either way.
