Seriously? This Ain't Miami

From the Chicago Sun Times: Friday’s early-morning Halloween snowfall set a record for the city of Chicago and led to more than 300 canceled flights at O’Hare International Airport.
A tenth of an inch of snow was recorded at O’Hare International Airport, according to the National Weather Service. It marked the city’s first Halloween with any snow since 1993 and the first with measurable snowfall — which means at least a tenth of an inch — in recorded history.
Chicago has seen snow on Halloween only six times since 1873, NWS meteorologist Mike Bardou said.
Airlines proactively canceled more than 300 flights at O’Hare as of Friday morning, the city’s Department of Aviation said. Flights at Midway International Airport were operating normally.
Chicago gets .1 inch of snow, smaller than the lettering on this blog, and they cancel 300 flights?
Damn wimps.
Gotta love that global warming.
