More Snow on the Way

By Margaret Lyons in News on Jan 31, 2008 4:35PM


Good news, snowbunnies. The National Weather Service is predicting up to 7 inches of snow today, starting around 2pm and continuing through Friday morning. We're already having a very snowy season--so far, 22 days with measurable snow, and we've racked up 30.2 inches at Midway (average for the last 30 years is 25.5), which makes this the fourth snowiest winter in 25 years. Luckily, temperatures won't be too brutal, staying somewhere in the 20s. [WGN, NWS]

Beat the snowblahs with some retail therapy: howsabout this Chicago-inspired scarf? Or a locally-made dog sweatshirt? Maybe your laptop needs a sweater? Perhaps we should embrace the wintry vibe and decorate with a rustic-theme. And screw going out, let's just stay home and play with shadow puppets.
