County slips by in season’s first storm
The first snowfall of winter packed far less punch in McHenry County than forecasters predicted, but high winds and low temperatures caused a few problems.
The county expected 4 to 6 inches of snow Thursday evening into Friday morning. But with temperatures hovering around freezing, there was no large accumulation on the ground, said Kevin Brink, meteorologist at the National Weather Service.
Nonetheless, the snowfall ended an official snowless streak that reached 290 days.
