Snomg. Snowpocalypse. Groundhog Day Blizzard of 2011. Whatever you call the massive snowstorm on February 1st and 2nd of 2011, you know that it’s wreaked havoc on numerous U.S. states this week. And the Chicago area was definitely included in the havoc-wreaking. We even learned a new term: THUNDERSNOW.
People were chattering nonstop about the snowstorm since Monday, January 31. By the time snow started to fall on Tuesday afternoon, the mixed fear and anticipation of it all was almost too much to bear. So, instead of idly sitting by and watching through the windows, we decided to set up a camera in order to gauge the total snowfall…using a neat stack of Bubba stress balls as the measurements. Thanks to Joseph Giorgi, our video king, we have an official weather report to document the quantity of snow we received from Tuesday night until Wednesday morning (don’t worry, it’s time-lapsed)!
Are you ready to see Bubba brave the snow? Here’s the “Groundhog Day Blizzard” weather report straight from Quality Logo Products headquarters in Aurora, Illinois:
Pretty amazing, huh? According to Bubba, we received approximately 10 inches of snow over the course of 12 hours. (The official snowfall totals report that Aurora had received approximately 19 inches by Thursday morning). That may not seem like much to those who are used to this kind of snowfall, but there’s no doubt that it seriously impaired travel around here!
