Snow Falling All Day

Happy New Year!

Snow falling all day, and the world  is transformed, new.

It is a world without steps and sidewalks. A world without roads. 

Safe journeys, travelers! No one has plowed or shoveled, yet.

Accuweather reports snow transitioning in the evening to lake-effect snow for Cook and Lake Counties--6''-10"  total accumulations.

My unofficial snow and shoveling report, here on the Western edge of the City---about  1-1/2 inches of light, powdery snow falling per hour. I would estimate over 8 inches accumulation  at 4:55, as I write this.

And  more snow falling, as the day turns into evening....

  • I was teed that Ginger Zee wasn't on tonight's ABC World News; instead some local guy from Boston. Maybe that's the effect of her promotion to head meteorologist.

    This seems one of the first times in a long time that big lake effect is forecast for this side of the lake.

    Happy New Year, Jack! How's the snow by you?

  • In reply to Weather Girl:

    I didn't go out, but I've seen worse, and I heard the association snow plow trucks.

    The way it sounds, I won't be going out Monday or Tuesday, either.

    Good morning, Jack. Plows came by around here at 3 am. Some impressive totals overnight! I'd estimate another 4 inches of snow here, and another inch since I went out to shovel at 7:30. Snowboard pants are getting a workout this year!

    See Tom Skilling's Weather Center blog. He explains the lake-effect intensity, too.

    Surprisingly, on the 10 p.m. news, Mike Caplan also brought up Skilling's "meso low."
