    why do we call these snow storms? I remember still going to school when there was 6 inches of snow and nothing was cancelled, to me anything over 8 inches is a snow storm

    I am so but we have gotten soft. This is what we normally call flurries. What amazes people are calling this a snow storm and schools are closing and business shutting down over a few inches????? WTH is the matter with you people. When they tell you there is a blizzard about to hit the city of Chicago to stay off the streets….you can't keep your asses at home. But, 3 to 4 inches and you are in a panic. Come on I have seen this City continue to go strong and life go on when we get 8 to 12 inches of snow. This is nothing. Like they say Man up or women up which ever the case may be!

    Guess it depends on where you are on the snow line. We have about 8-9 inches down and another 3-4 to look forward to. Heavy, wet snow. Good enough for a snow storm for me.

    Not every one lives or works in the city resulting in a multi hour commute due to hazardous driving conditions. The plows don't keep in front of the storm and businesses make the decision to "allow" people to leave about 90 minutes too late to make a difference every time. 10 MPH on the tollway and huge backups on exit ramps plus the 2 hours or more you will spend shoveling snow ONCE YOU GET HOME is plenty of storm for me.

    Sorry I didn't say anything about the suburbs or Chicaoland area I said Chicago the city of Chicago. Now if we got that much snow and were expecting even more snow. I would understand it. But we didn't get that much snow so I don't understand why they were calling it a snow storm in the City of Chicago.
