    As far as snow intensity, no doubt. Only took until mid March.

    3.6” thru 7:00 am from a report in Bourbonnais. Considering the duration to that point, pretty damn impressive.

    Drove early this morning from IKK to Hinsdale...snow was crazy heavy from home up to about Peotone. Big ole flakes just pouring down. I-57 was snow covered and downright dangerous.

    Lol, you have high expectations. I’ll give you December was a clunker, but it was for everyone. January was really good here. Mostly nickels and dimes, but we had a solid 3 week stretch of pretty good wintry appeal. But if a big dog is what you’re chasing, then I guess I understand. Alas, we’re in range of normal season snowfall. Nowhere near the disaster of past true sh*tty winters.

    Ripping big ole flakes here right now. Thankfully the ice melted off the trees and lines around here. But the sidewalks and side streets are a different story...

    Very efficiently. Untreated roads in my hood are pretty much gone now. Work is gonna be a blast tomorrow.

    I’m on the southwest side of Kankakee. I just went outside and have about 0.10” on my trees/bushes. Branches are crackling in the wind. My girlfriends car is now encased in ice. Driveway...my street... total skating rink. It’s not great here.

    Temp at my house is 30. Roads and sidewalks are skating rinks. Dynamite call by LOT leaving IKK out of the advisory.

    This is pretty damn cool. Can't remember seeing this legit of snow with these kind of temps. Viva la winter.

    Started snowing here as soon as returns moved overhead at -2/-14. Forcing is relatively good with this one. Enjoy!

    Yeah, 1935-36 was a pretty cold winter. And then of course what followed that summer. Extremes. And of course, Hoosier’s #1 analog for every summer.

    Yeah if this follows the last couple and does a bit better than modeled, I could see it being more like 2-4" here. But 1-3/2-4, pretty much the same thing.

    12z NAMs slashing QPF/snow here, so gonna make a call of 1-3" for IKK. Final. Will cap off a pretty decent clipper train for here though.

    Wait until Hoosier sees the bolded red.
