The deck gets deeper. My goodness. 

Just because I'll never see a model like this again. Hahaha.   

I measured 14-16” in many places. Local media saying we got 5” with this latest storm and I measured 2.5” Saturday morning on top of everything else. This is my north yard.

My final total is 1.2".  The liquid total is 0.05", so the ratio was a bit lower this time (24:1).

Still snowing here w accumulations just over 2 inches. I might go outside later to take measurement of total snowfall from all snowevents. I think I might be looking at 10" depth in mby now. Not too shabby!

Temp currently at 18F.

Snow really picking up. Let’s see if we get to 5”. I don’t think we will.  

Just as I typed this, we dropped to 1/4 visibility as heavy bands are developing over my area a little ahead of schedule. Boy the cut off on the northeast is going to be sharp.

What a winter. This is like what my dad talks about of the 60’s and 70’s winters. We have big piles everywhere. Got 2.5” this morning and now this storm on top of 7 or 8 other storms. It is crazy how you get missed. My brother in Shawnee said he is jealous of our winter. I’ll enjoy it, as other epic winters in the last 10-15 years missed us to the north and northeast.

ORD officially topped out at 3.2" (3.3" correct amount) which gives me pause that my 2.8" might have been a bit low.  Nevertheless, a solid refresher to add to the ever growing glacier.

@Tom

Quite the comeback for Chi-town. Congrats amigo! Even with another 1.4" yesterday I'm at a paltry 48% of seasonal total (don't track to-date) so no where near the impressiveness you've had. This is an odd year when there's that much difference between our locales since we often share the southern stream waves coming across the CONUS. Who knows, maybe I'll get lucky later this week..

I thought of that as well bud and was thinking of that the other say.  Normally, our locals end up both doing good but this season has been an odd one to say the least.  It really feels like I’m living in a different world, one that I have not been used to over the past few years.  The historic Feb continues to roll on.  Hope you score from both systems this week and make up the deficit in a bigly way.

The table and grill were cleared off by me last Monday, so this is in the last 6 days. 

My goodness you have been the jack pot winner this week. I got my fare share but got missed by a couple. What is your snow depth?

-10 degrees and it’s snowing again. Went to take the trash out through the tundra and the vehicles are covered. Could be 1/4-1/2”. Saw one little band on radar, but assumed it was too cold. Most years your begging for a snow. 

 I think it's absolutely awesome to have snow at these temperatures it's really the first time I've seen this much fall when it's this cold I can't imagine what it's like up your way with all the snow you have.

Just another day, with another measurable snowfall.  Only 0.2” of snow from this weak wave that came through but it adds to the streak of days with measurable snow.

It really has been an incredible stretch of Winter this month.  The extremely cold temps and snow falling is something I won’t forget.  It literally feels like we are living up in Canada or Alaska.  Pure awesomeness!

It reminds me YouTube videos I’ve watched of Fairbanks Alaska when it is snowing at -30.

These are the type if memories that will stick forever.  Congrats on the snows out there!  My snow depth looks just as impressive as yours.  I ventured out for an early morning walk today to take it all in.  Oh, the temp was -4F and the WC -25F or so.

0F with moderate snow ATM.  I’m underneath a surprise band that came out of nowhere.  My grid was updated and now includes 1-2” of snow tonight which wasn’t in the forecast.  Gosh, has  nature put on a show or what?

Off and on moderate snow at times here also. Roads are fully covered and very fluffy snow as you would expect

I measured exactly 0.75" or 0.8" at midnight when I went out on my deck about 30 min ago.  This puts my Valentine's Day weekend total snowfall with just about 4" of new snow.  I'm very pleased with how this weekend shaped up.  Frigid with snow.  Can't get any better than that!
