Remember snow? You know, that white stuff that usually covers the ground this time of year?
Two years ago today, a blizzard struck the area, shuttering Buffalo Grove schools and libraries.
Meanwhile, the suburbs have seen only a couple of inches of snow in all this year.
That total could soon be on the rise. According to the National Weather Service, there’s an 80 percent chance of snow Friday night, with 1 to 3 inches of accumulation possible.
If you’re yearning for a glimpse of a real winter wonderland, take a look back at the photos that Buffalo Grove Patch readers shared from the 2011 blizzard.
