1/25/14 snow totalA few inches of snow fell with this system but the big news was the crazy winds gusting up to 47 mph at the airport and near 60 mph in the suburbs. This snow overnight Saturday with incredible winds Sunday blew the snow around on your properties so that the only things left to plow were drifts Sunday night.

Snow totals were widely variable with this system. See the chronology below for a better understanding of the timing.
