    No snowpack really left here except piles and ugly rain-soaked crusty stuff. Let's not forget that winter didn't really get going until x-mas eve last year.

    Ours has been out since about 10 pm. We have a one WEEK old, so left for the parents’ house around 1 AM. Power lines down, electrical fires, cars stranded. Got a kerosene heater going to keep the temp up in the house. Who knows when it’ll come back on.

    Transformer just blew down the road and the power’s out in the hood. Heard a nice pop.

    Agreed. We have maybe 4” of slop here in Libertyville and half of that came during this afternoon’s band. Not sure if we’re stuck in an area of subsidence or the lake is playing a role, but the driveway is soupy and everything continues to drip outside. Maybe once we drop below freezing things will accumulate quickly? Accumulation sure hasn’t been efficient at all.

    Not a bad day to decorate the tree! Steady SN, light winds.

    Ice pellets and stray snowflakes here. That video from Kansas is intense!

    Pretty narrow swath of heavy snows - not surprising given the time of year. This one looks to be a nail biter. A lot has to go right and a lot can change. Snow should be as wet/thick as Thanksgiving gravy.

    Around here, the Fox Valley looks to get a soaking over the next few hours. Doesn’t look to budge much. Those of us sandwiched between the light rain of the main circulation and the heavier stuff may not see much after all.

    Found this interesting for Chicago... The city’s last subfreezing high this year was 27 degrees logged on February 12 and despite our backwards spring, every day since then has topped the freezing mark. Checking temperature records back to 1871, Chicago climatologist Frank Wachowski informed us that the city’s average date for the last subfreezing high is March 15. If the February 12 date holds, it will be more than a month earlier than the long-term average and the city’s third earliest on record-trailing only February 7, 1976 (28 degrees) and February 10, 1878(30 degrees). http://wgntv.com/2018/04/20/does-feb-12-2018-approach-a-record-for-the-earliest-last-sub-freezing-high/

    April 8th-9th "winter" storm?

    Surprisingly over 2” of pretty fluffy stuff so far clinging to every tree branch. Hope the warmth at the end of the week pans out.
