Saturday Night Snow!
today at 3:34 pm
Maybe you remember the Big Snow of 1967. The photo above is from the Chicago Tribune Archives, from that snow storm in 1967. The storm in the forecast for Saturday night-Sunday morning doesn’t have a name or snow totals, yet, but it is forecast to be a big one.
Do you remember the Ground Hog Day blizzard of 2011–ten years ago?
I remember shoveling snow for days. It was surreal how much snow there was. Here’s a post I wrote about it five years ago. Yes, the storm had many names–Snowzilla, Snowmageddon, the Snowpocalypse, too!
What name will we have for the storm that is coming this evening? Are we prepared for up to 9-10 inches of heavy, wet snow?
Yes, some folks will be out playing in this stuff. I hope so! It should be good packing snow, snowman making snow.
As I write this at 3:30 on Saturday afternoon, here comes the snow. I will be out there shoveling it, and if you are, too, take it slow. I’ll have an update on Sunday.
