About this Article

The Chicago suburbs are digging out from the largest snow event of the winter season just a few weeks after it looked like the area was on track for one of the least snow-filled seasons in history. Only 3.5 inches of snow were recorded at O'Hare as of Jan. 31, and comparisons were being made to the winter of 1920-21, when only 9.8 inches fell.
