The Best Sites For Learning About The “Blizzard Of Oz”

Snowpocalypse. Snowmaggedon. One of my Facebook friends had posted that “All snow hell had broken loose” in Chicago. Call it what you will, the Blizzard of 2011 has made history, and kids will certainly have a lot of questions to ask and stories to tell. 

Always timely and valuable, Larry Ferlazzo has published a list of “The Best Sites for Learning About the “Blizzard of Oz.”

Here in Galesburg (IL) we had 15.5 inches of the white stuff in about as many hours, with 35+ mph winds creating drifts of monumental proportions.  Photos of the blizzard in Galesburg are posted at our local paper’s website. They have also posted a number of Reader snowstorm photos.

Quincy (IL) television station WGEM has posted an slideshow if images from south of here in the Quincy, Macomb, Canton, and northeastern Missouri region.
