Chicago gets first 1-inch snowfall in 335 days

CHICAGO (AP) — As far as snow goes, Chicago didn’t’ get much — just over an inch as of this morning. But it was still one for the record books.

National Weather Service forecaster Matt Friedlein  says this is the latest first snowfall of at least an inch since record-keeping began in 1884. The last record was Jan. 17, 1899.

It marks another record: Chicago went 335 days, or about 11 months, without an inch of snowfall in any calendar day.

The area has received a total of 2.8 inches of snow this winter, 15  1/2 inches below normal.

The snow was significant for another reason: Some people finally got to work.

Clara Mark of Chicago Snow Removal Services says this is the first time their plows have been out all winter.
