I heard on WGN that a state of emergency was declared in Kane County.
So now we have Lake,Will, and Kane in emergency status.

Sidenote: What is with Cook and DuPage? I can't speak for DuPage, but where I am at in the city, there are snow drifts on the sidewalks in places that are 3-6 feet high.

Although we have a total traffic ban, the ploughs were out around 6am here in Lake Bluff. There isn't more than a foot of snow here, I guess we were lucky being so far north.

I can say that along the Cook Co/DuPage border, it's bad. We have 3-6 foot snow drifts as well. There are no cars on the streets that I can see, but I did see a snow plow make a couple of passes. It's still snowing lightly here too.

according to the news, Ohare was at 17.1 when it was still coming down... so my guess is we got 17.5 - 18"
but the drifts and piles at the end of the drive were huge.

Our Public Works obviously kept up with it last night. Kudos.

Just heard a report that an additional 3-6" is expected in the city due to lake effect snow.

Yeah, it was at 19.5 at like 9am.

The NWS has the totals, but they have not updated for almost 2 hours:

All we need is 3 more to tie the record. I think the record will fall today.

The question is, can you even pull out of your driveway?

I just got off the phone with a friend and he told me it's still snowing in Park Forest (the far southern end of Cook County).
