One of the worst November storms ever to hit Chicago area

“One of the largest November storms on record dumped as much as 13 inches (33 cm) of snow on the Chicago area Sunday into Monday,” says the Chicago Tribune.

26 Nov 2018 – The storm, which all by itself made this the sixth-snowiest November in Chicago history, jammed the morning commute, forced cancellation of more than 1,000 flights, shut hundreds of schools and knocked out power to more than 340,000 homes and businesses.

  2. I wonder how many Chicagoans realize that they now only have electrical power because of FOSSIL FUEL.

    Maybe President Trump could thank the coal workers for their vital work in keeping Chicago’s services running during this cold period.

  3. November is not far into the zenith or the ‘bottoming out’ of King Winter. Statistically 8th January is coldest day in UK. 11th August is hottest by (a strange) comparison.
    However, last March the UK went into near meltdown as all buses, trains and taxis failed. A sudden stratospheric warming led to a serious ‘Beast from the East’ mighty wind from Siberia. Then a storm called Emma broke in and snow like I have never seen before resulted. Any worse and I might not be talking to you right now because I chose to fight the elements and walk 12 miles home.
    A heatwave was present in the southerly tip of Greenland but we need more verification.
    My money is on snow and ice this winter.
