heres another pic of all of the snow outside my house. It’s officially been the storm of the new century. With more than 20 inches of snow falling in Chicago and the suburbs, many people were stranded indoors, at airports, and even on the street. The measurement at Midway Airport was 20.9 inches of snow that began falling about 2:30 p.m. Tuesday and finally dissipated in the early afternoon on Wednesday. That was more than the official measurement at O’Hare Airport, which was 20.2 inches.
