It's now the snowiest winter season on record in Indianapolis.

The National Weather Service says 1.1 inches of snow fell Saturday night and early Sunday in Indianapolis, giving the city a total of 51.6 inches of snow since Dec. 1. The weather service says that make this the snowiest December through February on record in Indianapolis, surpassing the 51 inches of snow recorded in 1981-82.

There could be more coming. The National Weather Service has forecast snow and freezing rain for Monday afternoon in central Indiana.

For the Indianapolis snow year that runs from July 1 to June 30, the weather service says this year is tied for third at 51.7 inches, a mark also recorded in 1995-96. That's 6½ inches off the record of 58.2 inches in 1981-82. The 1977-78 snow year was the second snowiest at 57.9 inches.

  • What Makes Midwinter So Bleak
    For another take on what makes "midwinter" so bleak, here's a short (1.5 minute) comedy video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MgdZs6xCKSk Hint: It's not always the cold...
  • Asking a lot?
    Jerry, can you believe the nerve of some people expecting such lavish public services such as snow plowing of main thoroughfares? What will they want next: sidewalks cleared, potholes filled, and 911 calls answered promptly?
  • complainer
    Quit *itching* I'm sick and tired of everybody complaining about how the streets arent plowed. some people are just not happy unless they're complaining
  • Snow Plow
    AND..no matter how much or little we get, our city will not plow it. On Friday 2/14) I spent from 1 PM to 8:30 PM driving around Indy, using such streets as West 10th, Michigan, New York, East, College, I 65, Shelby, Raymond, Harding, Belmont, Washington, 465 west, and Rockville. I did not see a plow. Hopefully the citizens of Indy will vote our the mayor at the next election. This lack of basic city services is a disgrace and should the Super Bowl people hear of it, Bye bye 2018.

    1. Angela IS the best RD

    2. We are a nation of speed. All of our younger lives are filled with deadlines, quotas and bottom lines. We start to ease out of the pressured rat-race when we finally see "retirement." The most enjoyable travel on the planet is passenger rail service. Indy to Chicago does not beat Megabus or Southwest Airlines in speed. Passenger rail however has the best seating, mammoth legroon, seat backs that recline to more than 45 degrees and employers that really want you to return as a customer. Indiana municipalities need to maintain subsidies to support this transportation mode. Losing it is loss for all of us.
