We've been getting pounded in PA too. There's already a couple of feet of snow on the ground, and now they're calling for a system to drop more snow, sleet, and up to one inch of ice between tonight and Wednesday morning.

Yeah, this global warming is killing us. :rolleyes:

depends on what the jetstreams are doing.
Cough. Cough. Bullshit! :rolleyes:
Statistics over the past 100 years pretty much prove that this is a normal occurance. No man made or other wise "global warming" as a part of it.

Severe snow storms as well as annual snow fall in the Chicago area in the early 1900's where comparable if not larger than most recent years. :laughing:

http://www.crh.noaa.gov/lot/winter/chi_sno_hist.php

Since snow records began in 1886 in Chicago, there have been 41 winter storms that produced 10 inches or more of snow. A 10 inch snow occurs about once every 3 years. A 15 inch snow occurs only once about every 19 years. The closest back to back 10 inch snows were March 25-26 and April 1-2, 1970 (6 days apart). The longest period of time without a 10 inch snow or greater was February 12, 1981 to January 1, 1999 (almost 18 years). The earliest 10 inch snow was November 25-26, 1895 and the latest 10 inch snow was April 1-2, 1970. The most recent 10 inch snow was January 21-23, 2005.

P.S.

If you think only the most recent years have produced the most snow fall and the worst winter storms due to man made issues, you might want to study the timeline of this map. :cheers:
