Your exactly right! Chicago was rated 2 years in a row for the highest rate in murders.

Maybe if it snowed a little more in Chicago it would keep people in doors and drive that murder rate down. You know, and the general public curses the snow... if only they knew how it can help reduce the crime rate let alone our bottom lines!

Let it snow Chicago!

Let it snow Chicago!

murders would be higher during bad weather.cops have a hard time getting around and theres not to many people out and about to see anything out of line.

good luck i hope you get snow

Actually I live in Grayslake. I sub for a large contactor in the Vernon Hills Lake Forest Lincolnshire area. So i did get out once this year with the new ram. This should be the real test though. Noaa radio broadcasts from Crystall lake. That is the government all weather radio station. They are pretty good, I use it mostly for weather on Lake Michigan (boat owner) for wave reports. But times like these I love to get every forecast I can.;)

Snowing pretty good here in central Iowa:D Weather guessers are calling for 8 to 12. Trucks are ready, just finished giving them a pre storm inspection.

Guess we'll see what happens.
Stay safe,

Just got an update from NOAA.


Tonight: Occasional snow. Chance for measurable precipitation is 90%. Cloudy, with a low near 28. North northeast wind between 10 and 15 mph. New snow accumulation of 8 to 12 inches possible.

Sunday: Occasional snow. The best chance for snow is before noon. Chance for measurable precipitation is 90%. Cloudy, with a temperature falling to around 25 by 3pm. Blustery, with a northeast wind between 15 and 20 mph. New snow accumulation of 2 to 4 inches possible.

Sunday Night: Flurries possible until midnight. Cloudy, then gradually becoming partly cloudy, with a low around 18. Blustery, with a north northwest wind between 11 and 20 mph.

But that is my area in Lake in the Hills. I hope We get tons! Good luck guys!

Well guys, for once, it looks like its going NORTH, and going to mostly miss me. Oh well, I guess that's ok, I will share.

They are calling for an inch overnight, and up to 4-6 tomorrow. Judging by the doppler and satelite, the few spits we had this afternoon is all we should expect, it doesn't look like there is much moisture out there/ However, I've been wrong before, and I'm no weatherman....

Have fun and be safe all you Norhtern IL guys, :cash

Thank You SBT you're most gracious:D
The forecast for Chicago is as many inches as murders so far this year, 6! Just incredible:(
Plows on trucks, salt in back, full fuel tanks, just waiting for it to miss me now:D I'd be glad to take the credit.
Anybody ever use plowing as an excuse to get out of jury duty?:rolleyes:

SCL - Please stop kidding. It was supposed to start snowing at 7:00PM Last nite, I have not seen a flake since early afternoon! From the way I see it the storm will not be hitting us hard until noon or so. I predict very little accumulation before 10am! :D

Well already after midnight when is was suppose to be starting and still nothing. It will be like the big storm last March that we heard about for two day and ended up with like 4" alomst 24hrs after they said it would start.

As long as if falls in a large amount I would be happy. Need some white stuff to be around for more than a day or two.

9:10 am and about 1.5" on the ground, coming hard, and starting to blow a little, if it keeps this up, we may have more than 2-4" as expected. Its nice to see snow again, we almost had to get out the mower and cut the grass, I think it started grpwing the other day, it was 65°F a new record!
