Chicago Now Has Its Fourth Snowiest Winter Ever On Hand

By Jon Graef in News on Mar 1, 2014 8:30PM

This winter, much like suffering as defined by Buddhist thought, or existential ennui in an art-house flick, just won't end. Multiple media outlets are reporting that, even with the light smattering of snow we got this afternoon, Chicago now has its fourth snowiest winter on hand. Almost 69 inches of snow had fallen at O'Hare as of Saturday morning. The previous record of fifth snowiest winter was set just a little over a week ago when that thunder snow everyone was crowing about struck.

Additionally, the National Weather Service has issued another fucking winter weather advisory, saying Chicago was due for another 4 to 6 inches of goddamned snow Saturday afternoon. And, as if that snow wasn't enough, there's a chance to see even more of the white stuff's shit-eating grin Sunday, along with winds up to 30 miles per hour and a low of minus 15 Sunday night.

Because nothing like a kick in the gonads from old man winter to start your week, right?
