Midwest's 'Snowpocalypse' doesn't show up in Detroit Special

Posted Feb 2, 2011 by Matt Harding
The incredible 'Snowpocalypse' in Detroit hasn't quite lived up to all of the hype as the biggest storm of the 21st century.

Midwesterners were hit hard by the 2011 storm, but, one area in the Midwest wasn't hit that hard at all: Detroit. Reports of 12-16 inches of snow or more on the eve before the storm, the weathermen and women in Detroit were all wrong and it was evident when they woke up Wednesday morning.
While the Chicago-area has been hit with roughly 15 inches of snow, depending on where you go, Metro Detroit has received between five to 10 inches. Let's not forget the temperature and wind chill though. As of about noon (EST) it's 18 degrees in Chicago, with the wind chill making it feel like six or so degrees. In Detroit, on the other hand, it's 21 degrees; wind chill isn't factoring into the equation today.
While the snow continues in both of the Midwest's largest cities, it's not nearly the amount that fell overnight. Still, the 'Snowpocalypse' left many Detroiters wondering, "Is that it?"
Even power outages weren't prevalent in Detroit. Only 3,700 people lost power in the entire state; and that was mostly a hundred or more miles away from the city.
Maybe, however, the next 'Snowpocalypse' in the Midwest will be the biggest storm of the 21st century.
