Some people have all the luck. Chicago, which is where the photo at left was taken, has received 38" of snow so far this winter. It seems Mother Nature has been overly generous with her white blanket of snow across the Great Lakes states while here in the Ohio Valley we've gotten bubkas. Our snow total for the winter so far has been around 3". We still have a lot of winter left though and it wasn't until January 25, 1978 that the blizzard hit so we still have a lot of opportunity for snow.
An arctic blast is heading our way. Low temperatures by Thursday morning will be around -8F (-22C) with wind chill readings in the -20 to -25F (-30C) range. All of these temperatures are based on not having any snow cover on the ground. If we can get a few inches of snow, temperatures may end up dropping to near -15F (-26C). I hope we get a good snow cover! A clipper system is dropping down from Canada and might give us that snow Wednesday. Indianapolis is saying the heaviest snow will be north of I-70 with only 1-2 inches across the Metro area and an inch or less around Columbus. Louisville is saying Columbus will get 2 inches with heavier amounts to the north. I don't know who to believe, so we'll just wait and see what happens.
