2.4 official at O'hare. 2.9 at midway. Multiple reports of 50+ wind gusts

Same for towns around here though my wx station showed only 39 mph. probably from to much wet snow frozen onto the anemometer.

Another 1/2" overnight has brought my storm total to 4.3" (biggest yet!) and I see it lines up nicely with the map from the NWS for here. Wasn't completely whiffed on the backside LES, but the wind did remain enough S of W to keep the better stuff 1/2 a county north as was my expectation after interrogating the SR models Thursday pm.

All in all, not the Watch/Warn storm I'm still hunting for, but way better than the rainer we thought was heading this way. And the LES belt counties did well. It also was my kind of storm in that we had the dense WAA snows first followed by the LES frosting on the layer cake. Solid white out there attm. Can't complain, especially with another 2+ in the forecast.

Cheers to all the NFL fans following their hopefuls!
