Why do the national weather center dudes insist on typing in all caps?

Yeah. Not sure exactly how much snow we got here in Chicago (edit: O'Hare got 20 inches), but it took a good 2 1/2 hours to shovel out the driveway this morning with 2 other people, and there were drifts about 5 feet high all along the alley. Probably not gonna be using the car for a couple days...

To all of my non-Minnesota Interference friends:

YouTube - Welcome To The Party Pal!


BTW--remember to carefully shovel off your roofs for the inevitable ice dams and internal house damage that will follow. I'd post pictures, but I'm still too pissed off.

Shittiest winter in 15 years.

Got about 7 inches yesterday to add to the snow we have had already (can't remember what it looks like without the snow) then the freezing rain started for most of the night. Woke up this morning to sleet then changed back over to snow. Still snowing... when will spring arrive?

I am wondering that myself! Have seen nothing but snow on the ground for at least a good month now that I have forgotten what grass looks like.

I'm about an hour to the east of you and I still can't believe how much more snow Chicago got than us. We were supposed to get way more snow than y'all and we got...six inches. But apparently there's a lot of ice out there too, which of course is not good. My dad is just driving me nuts talking about how this is the most snow he's ever seen...come on dad. No real wind to speak either.

The good news is I'm being told there's another system coming through next week, just as strong

Well after about 6-7 inches of snow Tuesday, Wednesday started with some more snow, changed to sleet for 2 hours and then it rained the rest of the day until the temperatures started to plummet in the afternoon, freezing all the slush and huge puddles in place. But the best part was last night when I went to take the dog out and saw some lightning and we got a new form of precip to cap things...hail!

Forecast is for snow or a "wintry mix" on Saturday and then more snow on Tuesday.
Enough is enough already.
