  1. Can the pros give some more insight on eclipse viewing conditions? I would also like to head to the Chicago lakefront but it seems like we may be cloudy
  2. Still over 9" snow depth (glacier depth) in my backyard in Chicago's Irving Park neighborhood. Just amazing snowpack in the city this month. My yard is pretty shaded but the neighbors depth seems pretty similar.
  3. @michsnowfreak Curious to look at the snowcover data for some other locations, where would I find that? Best source I've seen is the NCDC climate normals reports but it only has monthly data
  4. Low of 35 in my backyard, but frost in the center of Horner Park on Chicago's northwest side. Thought it was a pretty good example of a park being somewhat of an oasis in the urban heat island. The grass on the edges of the park was only dewy but frost in the center. Sorry for the dementor shadow
  5. I'm in St Helen and was in Grayling yesterday, colors have only just started up here. Maybe ~10% of trees
  6. First time poster, but have been following the forum for a couple years. I grew up in Metro Detroit but have lived in Chicago about 10 years. I'm mainly interested in the winter storms and chasing some good snow, so its counterintuitive that my first post would be in August. Thought this shot from Lakeview (Wayne & Byron) was worth posting with the smashed car and multiple trees down. In terms of damage this storm actually reminded me a lot of one I experienced in northern Michigan in July 1995. I looked it up and it hit the far north of the forum, if this is the right storm. https://www.spc.noaa.gov/misc/AbtDerechos/casepages/jul1995derechopage.htm
