Chicagoans are used to snow, so we don't panic when the forecast calls for 24 hours of snow. We make sure our vehicle gas tanks are full, pick-up a few groceries and get ready to shovel.
This February is really pushing our snow limits. In the past 24 hours, we've had 18 inches of snow. We now have about three feet of snow on the ground. It all fell in February.
Some day this will make for a great story. Today, though, I would be happy if this was the last snow of the season.
