It Has Been a Long Time

I previously wondered when Springfield last had an official blizzard. The National Weather Service has the answer here. It occurred over 24 years ago on January 29-31, 1982.

I must say though, this week’s blizzard was a pretty mild in Springfield. I had little trouble getting to work yesterday and by last night, less than 24 hours after the snow started, even the side streets were in good shape. It was a wimpy blizzard.

Thats because this is march. Let the same storm come in january and see what happens. It would have been a dryer snow with more blowing and drifting, plus the temps would have plunged to zero or below. We have for the most part had a very uneventful winter.
