This isn't the biggest one I've seen, the storm of '67 is still the biggest in the Chicago area, but this one was interesting. We had "thunder snow"! Ok, I've never heard of that, it was lightening & thundering for about a half hour around 10 p.m. last nite.
Weather channel said it is called "thunder snow"!
Most of our snow drifted due to high winds, so hard to tell how much we actually got, but they are saying 20".
Here's a few pics of my deck before & after, the yard between us & our neighbors garage, it's up to just under his windows and our backyard & youngest grandson on snow hill in front yard today, beautiful sunny day today! Go figure, but 6 degrees with wind chill.
