Rainiest, Coldest October?

According to CBS 2, anyway. Some uplifting news to end our work-week with.

An October that began by setting an 82-year record for cold is also going down to tie a record for rainy days too.

As October drags to a fairly warm, but rainy end, CBS 2's Mary Kay Kleist reports there were 19 days measurable rainfall in Chicago this October, the same as the record number for any October.

On the bright side, there was no measurable snow.
