  1. Ripped nicely here with the last band that just moved through. Nice flake size too. My two new four legged additions are loving it.
  2. Lol at LOT leaving parts of the CWA out of the WWA, while surrounded by advisories from other offices in their areas. But consider the source I guess. Regardless, think 2-3” is a decent bet for here.
  3. If weather.gov says it, it must be true then! That’s from IKK, which reports rain half the time it’s snowing. It’s junk. Anyways, must be one hell of a rain/snow line in this county. Grass and elevated surfaces are accumulating here now. Maybe some flood warnings for Momence?
  4. Lol. It’s been snowing here since 8:00 am. I mean, I’ve been out in it the entire time.
  5. Just a touch too far southeast here to see any snow with the next wave. But Halloween mood flakes look like a solid bet. Grats to all who have seen and will see measurable.
  6. What a miserable day. The pouring leaves were the cherry on top. 2.25" in my rain gauge. Super wet year continues...
  7. Don’t try to reason or respond to that idiot. You’re a good poster. Don’t waste your time.
  8. Stay safe. Working in this sucks, but today isn’t as awful here as forecasted really. Still hot of course. Regardless, good thing I bought a house earlier this year that has a pool.
  9. Sub severe here at my place, but the winds are roaring...constantly been that way for about 10 minutes. Not like the usual “short” burst you get. But, my girlfriend is in Manteno and they apparently got rocked pretty good. Trees down and a bunch of stuff went flying with the winds there.
  10. Got woken up in the middle of the night by my phone alerting to a flash flood warning. All for a measly 0.60” in my rain gauge. Just the eastern 1/4 of the county got anything of consequence, but LOT went trigger happy farther west. It was great!
  11. Kankakee County a disaster, literally. Declaration announced for the farming community. Story: https://www.daily-journal.com/news/local/official-announces-emergency-declaration/article_8aa9cea2-83a5-11e9-b00d-3fdbe38058ac.html

For reference, PAH's mean yearly precipitation total is 49.08" (1981-2010 normals). 1) 38.52" in 2019 2) 38.35" in 1950 3) 38.14" in 2011 4) 35.11" in 1945 5) 33.49" in 1973
  13. ORD has set a new May total precipitation record...beating the "old" record that was set all the way back in...2018. 1) 8.24" in 2019 (thru 6:00 AM today) 2) 8.21" in 2018 3) 7.59" in 1945 4) 7.32" in 1883 5) 7.27" in 2011 As well, Apr-May 2019 is the wettest on record. 1) 14.26" in 2019 2) 13.95" in 1893 3) 13.64" in 2013 4) 13.42" in 1873 5) 13.15" in 1975 This Spring will go down, most likely, as the 2nd wettest on record for Chicago. 1) 17.51" in 1983 2) 16.35" in 2019 3) 15.67" in 1882 4) 15.64" in 2013 5) 15.59" in 1975 And one last one, 2019 is the 3rd wettest start to the year (Jan thru May) on record. 1) 22.23" in 2013 2) 21.56" in 1975 3) 21.12" in 2019 4) 20.23" in 1983 5) 19.81" in 1999
  14. Lol, wow. But yes, I agree. I'd take 100 and dry right now, for a couple of weeks, in a minute.
