Through midnight last night, records were being set for snowfall, including a one-day total of 13.6 inches at O'Hare (airport for anyone not familiar with Chicago... and yes, a few flights were cancelled). The accumulation for the storm overall was approaching 2 feet as of 9:30 this morning, and it's still coming down. That's right... It's still coming down!
Here are some of the branding options I've found:
- The Great Groundhog Day Blizzard
- Blizzaster 2011
- Snowzilla 2011
- Snowmageddon v. Snowpocalypse: The Great Snowdown of 2011
- Snowmega (same link as Great Snowdown... extra props to Maize n Brew Dave)
- Here are a few options I haven't found associated with Chicagoland yet: Snowsaster, Blizzanation, Winter's Fury 2011, the Snowverdose (although this one is on a blog about Connecticut)
With another 5 inches projected to fall today, truly polar temperatures, and more snow in the long-range forecast, the fun may just be getting underway... So, if you're stuck inside nearby or sitting someplace warmer and mocking us, the unfortunate souls of the Upper Midwest, share your thoughts on the branding options above or contribute a few of your own. I'll be wondering how long my food provisions will hold out before I need to venture into the mounds of freezing white doom!
