Temps running -15 to -20 with wind chills up to -45. Wind chill warning has been out for N MN this morning. Always have to look at the old vs new wind chill charts. A good part of my life was under the old values, and they are still ingrained in me. Based on temp and wind, the -45 is -60 under the old.

-60 to -75 wind chills were common back in the day, which equates to -45 to -55 now.

Our 2.7" New Year's snowfall did it's best to hang on through a zzzzz  1st 9 days of January, But thanks to yesterday's pointless mid to upper 30s damp thaw  We now have just patches and piles of frozen Snipes. Extended pattern has clipper potential but any details are going to be non existent before anything gets into short range.

Went back and checked something from last year.

 

ORD seasonal snowfall total on 1/10/2021:  5.4"

ORD seasonal snowfall total on 1/10/2022:  6.1"

 

Will a rally as big as last year come walking through the door?  Tall order, but anything can happen.

Waited to hear from Bo, looks like he got a couple feet of snow. 

Sorry to disappoint... I wasn't allowed to post for 10 days.

Received in excess of 2'.  The best I could measure was 29" (MQT 27.4").  It snowed heavy for 15 hours straight, and constant for 48 hours..  Here's a couple pics.

Over the 100" mark for the season.

Icy layer on top of the snow from the freezing rain this past weekend may be helping to slow the melt?

Helping here, but I've got nowhere near 3". Front yard likely to be largely bare outside of piles. The wind prior to the freezing drizzle really caused a lot of blowing and drifting, so it's pretty sporadic. Models sure have been depressing and reality even moreso.

Man this is crazy, visibility right now is probably only a few hundred feet.  The sky directly overhead now has some blue in it, and the sun is very dimly visible.  Guessing this fog is extremely shallow now, yet it is about as dense as fog can get.  About 5 miles west of here near the county border according to satellite it's totally clear.

It's the little things like this to keep you going through the boring times.
