Chicago's 5th Biggest Snowfall on Sunday-- Part 2: Chicago's Top Ten Snowfalls

Here are Chicago's Top Ten Biggest Snowfalls:

1.  23 inches--   The Big Snow or Blizzard of '67.  January 26-27, 1967.  My poor brother had to do the shoveling as I had a broken leg.  To this day he claims I did it on purpose so I could get out of the shoveling.  No snowblowers for us back then.  Just good old kid power.

2.  21.6 inches--  January 1-3, 1999.  The New Year's Eve Storm.

3.  21.2 inches Jan.31-Feb. 2, 2011.  Groundhog Day Blizzard

4.  20.3 inches--  Jan. 12-14, 1979--  Blizzard of '79.

5.  19.3 inches Jan. 31-Feb. 2, 2015.  Super Bowl Blizzard.  Spring Grove, Illinois, where we live, had 14.2 inches.  I count how much snow I have to remove and that would be closer to 18 inches.

6.  19.2 inches in 1930

7.  16.2 inches 1931

8.  14.9 inches 1939

9.  14.9 inches 1918

10.  14.8 inches 1929
