We got both Super Bowl teams here and looks like they both brought their weather with them. :mad1:  We were in the 70s all last week.  Starting tomorrow, they are predicting sleet/ice/snow/cold weather (in the teens)...the coldest of the year...all during Super Bowl week.  By Sunday, temps are back in the 50s, but since the game is inside, guess it doesn't matter. :whistle:  I wasn't going to any of the activities anyway, so if the weather gets bad, I'll be nice and warm in my house. :))

I'm interested in sharing war stories with swish. He's a bit west of me and they usually get more snowfall. 6" here is a big deal. They are talking 18" (likely west of me); the record is 21" in 1979.

How'd that work out?
The Sunday forecast for that area was uuuuuuugly!
Freezing rain and ice are no laughing matter.

I see your online at the moment, so apparently no long term loss of power. ://

The worst is expected to hit around 3pm today. As of yet, just a light dusting, but 0" and 0mph wind at my post. But a thundersnow storm passed through, which is very unusual. My first in 20 years.

Worst snowstorm in Chicago history
 The all-time Chicago record snowfall was set in 1967. Over the course of 35 hours, 23 inches of snow fell on Chicago, clogging streets, shuttering businesses and paralyzing the city for days. Roofs collapsed. Hundreds of stalled vehicles sat helpless in the streets. Dozens died.

The 1967 storm, oddly enough, was preceded by a few days of record high temperatures in the Chicago area. On Jan. 24, temperatures hit a balmy 65 degrees, bringing heavy rains. Just two days later, on a Thursday at 5:02 a.m., the snow began falling and didn't stop until almost 4 p.m. the next day.





















It must go through


The Randolph Street Station of the Illinois Central railroad is crowded with Loop workers trying to get a train home. Bad weather caused many to abandon their usual mode of transportation and take the train.


Afraid of being snowed in, Chicago area family headed out for groceries. This family, heading east of 79th Street in Chicago, brings home a large supply of milk.





Cars sit stranded and abandoned on South Lake Shore Drive near 12th Street in Chicago after the city's worst snowstorm. More than 500 cars littered Lake Shore Drive after the storm.


Youngsters begin the not-so-popular task of removing snow from stranded autos in downtown Chicago after a record-breaking snow that, accompanied by near zero temperatures. Many motorists were stranded overnight as cars dotted the city's streets and expressways.


Traffic comes to a stop on Ill. Route 53 at Schaumburg Road as efforts continue to dislodge vehicles from snow drifts.


Trucks operated by city crews dump loads of snow into the Chicago River near Wells Street and Wacker Drive.
