Winner gets a free T-Shirt
It’s hard to ignore the fall breeze that’s coming in, but what can we expect for the Chicago winter 2012-2013?
Football season started so everyone’s got on their gambling hats. Let’s place some bets on the weather for Chicago 2012-2013 winter. Anybody want to get a pool goin on this one? How many inches of snow will Chicago get?
Winner will get a free Chicago Rants T-Shirt. One person per number. First come, first serve. Comment below with your prediction and email.
2011 brought Chicago a massive blizzard. And 2012 gave us one of the warmest winters on record. From “snowpocalypse” to “springpocalypse,” we get the extremes. But what sort of ‘pocalypse’ is this winter going to give the Midwest?
The Farmers’ Almanac calls for “an average amount of winter precipitation,” but some sources say we can be getting “above average snowfall.” But that doesn’t really say much. That’s like saying, “Chicago will get anywhere from a below average winter to an above average winter, with a chance of a blizzard.” I’m sure we can do better than the weatherman on this one.
Take a look at the Chicago snowfall records in the past 10 years:
Anyway, comment below with your prediction and email. One person per number, let’s say 0-100 inches (the record is 89.7 in 1978-79), throw in a decimal if you’re feelin’ extra lucky. Winner gets a free Chicago Rants T-shirt and the opportunity to shovel my walkway next winter.
