    I am posting from inside an igloo. There's like 1800 feet of snow in Chicago.

    Ok maybe about 9 inches, but it came down very quickly... The plows couldn't keep up and my 30 minute commute was 90 minutes.

    We had about an hour of freezing rain and it has been raining since. It was raining like hell earlier. I am glad I drove back from Maryland last night instead of today.

    we finally switched over to rain and tmw should be low 40's
    but i don't think the rain this late will be enough to wash away the cluster fuck that will be my commute home

    Rain here, I left Norwood early because I forsaw epic traffic jams if the sleet got heavy. Turns out it just turned over to rain.
