Oh So Close! Chicago's February Snow Record Still Stands
We were all excited yesterday about the news that an overnight storm might mean Chicago would set a new record for February snowfall.
Alas, according to the Chicago Tribune, "only 0.2 additional inches were recorded at O'Hare International Airport, the official recording station."
So the city still needs another 0.6 inches to break the 27.8-inch total accumulated in February 1896.
But there's hope: There are three days left in the month and, says the Tribune, "light snow is likely Saturday with accumulations of 1 to 2 inches."
