We picked up about 2.5 inches here in Western Illinois (south of Galesburg). It seems like that is about all we can get this winter, are minor snowfall events (aside from one major one). Crazy to think that our biggest snowstorm of the winter may very well have occurred in November (not even technically winter!). Hopefully the next month and a half can give us at least one decent snowstorm. So far this winter has been my worst for photo/video material...:/
Their average annual snowfall is only 20 inches. I have a sister that lives there so I remember hearing a lot about "Snowmageddon" which left 45" of snow Feburary 5th-10th in 2010.
In 10 years of living in Illinois, I don't recall ever seeing a snowfall more than 18 inches. I hope we get at least one big storm before winter is over.
The southwestern piece of what is in the process of becoming the big eastern storm swung through Santa Fe overnight, giving us about an inch of snow. Not much, but at least we can say we were in on the storm.
Doesn't look like it will break the record of the Knickerbocker storm ( Crandall's Knickerbocker Theatre) But should break into the top 5. Calm now just snow, the winds are suppost to increase over night & most of tomorrow. I live 30 minutes south of DC.
1/10th of a mile visibility in Baltimore on Saturday morning due to heavy snow.
