    March Madness in the year 1875. From a weather observer at Stockwell in Tippecanoe County.
    MARCH 1- 6am it was 38 degrees and raining. 1pm 36 degrees. Have had a miserable afternoon of sleet and wind.
    MARCH 3- 6am 14 degrees and snowing with a strong wind. It snowed very hard up to 2pm. 12 inches of snow fell and it drifted badly. 8pm it was 12 degrees
    MARCH 4- 6am it was 13 below
    The snow started about 6am on March 3 and by noon the snow was 12 inches deep and drifts were six feet deep. Sometimes it does snow in the viewing area!

  7. Tom says:

    Friday MARCH 19, 1875- At 10am it began to snow briskly and snowed all day. At 9pm it was still snowing briskly.
    Saturday MARCH 20- There was 14 inches of snow on the ground this morning.
    Tuesday March 23- At 2pm it was 35 degrees and snowing rapidly and 1 inch of damp snow fell.

    At least 27 inches of snow fell in March 1875. That is what we call March madness in Tippecanoe County.

    Madman Cliff watch it the eyes of our haters are watching your blogs. And we all know who they are !

  18. charlene says:

    It’s not me that’s for sure…lol….still dancing ;)

  19. Jim says:

    No it’s not Charlene it’s your hater ! Keep dancing we aren’t done yet. Feel better

  20. charlene says:

    Jim…thank you..did you read my.post earlier? Sun Sipermarket I was the seafood manager the store I thought was located on A1A..but it was on the road right next to the mall…I feel a bit better today..thank you!

  21. rb says:

    Jimmy, you are just TOO weird, no one was cutting down Charlene, you are the one who assumes and wants to start up a stir, a conflict on Chads blog. Go back and count how many times you have posted. YOU are the one who keeps stating “haters” and other name calling. I liked a comment and you assumed it was a slam, Guess what it wasn’t! Now I agree with Rich, you are just rude to people on here if they dont agree what YOU post! Go back and read your MANY MANY previous posts, hypocrite! Stated and done, now on to the weather…..

  22. rb says:

    Jim, here is one of your previous posts do you see the spelling error that Rich was referring to!

    Jim says:

    Charlene what’s up no I didn’t see I was to busy with rich and rb bad mounting you I’m sorry. Where abouts. Lived of of Sample rd for 10 years 76-86

  23. mad man from afghanistan says:

    Buttstroke to the head, MOVE!!!!!, lol

  24. rb says:

    Rich, sorry those were not your words;

  25. mad man from afghanistan says:

    Wth is my stoogies up to, lol, we need some freakin snow in this BEEEOOCTH,lol

  26. charlene says:

    Mad Man lol…ues…snow please ! I am here not going anywhere even with all the ridiculous post that get put on here…sorry for any of you that have defended me..have a great weekend…God Bless

  27. charlene says:

    And for the typing errors like I like to call them…I am using my kindle fire and cannot always control my spelling before it gets posted…maybe that is an issue with some others as well..not that we CAN’T SPELL…there is just no editing on here once things get posted. Also you may notice that I do this………..a lot…it’s because there is no comma either on my kindle to use either. So please do not refer to someone as a dumb speller …maybe it is just their tablet like mine ;)

  28. rb says:

    No Charlene, it is not you, Jim goes from one extreme to another. He is nice then he cuts bloggers down. NO ONE was cutting you down but Jim made it seem that way! He is not on task with what he posts. He is here for the weather I guess but, he hardly never makes a post in a day without mentioning or trying to stir up nerves with other weather watchers. and so be it, Just hoped that he would learn how to blog, “weather” and not hurt other peoples feelings, he sure hurt mine!

    Chad i <3 u….the IT that changed the touch menus i do not <3.

  30. Jim says:

    Charlene. The Mall off of Copans Road. ? How’s it going today? Stoogies yes we do need snow. But it seems Mother Nature has other plans. Looks like next week we have snow coming. Haven’t heard from Monster lately. Mad Man what’s up. great post. Earlier still have snow on the ground.not much but atleast I see white. Will try your grill recipe Charlene sounds good. Well lets all do the curly shuffle one last time. Maybe monster can get some snow to plow. Hopefully it will be enough to cover the ground. Have a good day all ! And Ps Charlene you don’t go any where don’t let the R people chase you away. Moe

  31. Jim says:

    Rb Charlene was referring to something earlier that Rich had said to her. Rich apologized and its over. There are typing errors that can’t be edited on here. Yes it’s a weather blog and your right it needs to be kept that way. That being said I for one defended a fellow stooge and stand by that. The issue was closed now read the blog have fun and hopefully there is some weather info on here next week that can help you. Fellow Stoogies stick together. Moe

  32. Lisa says:

    Jim….you just got in a dig in yout last sentence. Even i got that one!Please stop. I don’t even like to come to the blog any longer because of this nit picking. You say “be nice” and then you make backhanded comments to “the R’s” I don’t know any of you but this blog makes me feel like i am in my middle school classroom. Charlene…there is a comma to use with the Kindle Fire. but it isn’t user friendly so I don’t use it vety much either.I totally get what you mean. Please everyone..be nice and watch the shorthand. Some phrases may be approptiate for one to one texting but certainly not for a public blog. That is what i have taught my students. Fewer people blog here and i am sure the blogging behaviors of this winter are a primary cause. Let’s stick to weather here. There are other sites for other types of conversations such as Facebook. I did not make this post to offend anyone so i apologize in advance if

  33. Lisa says:

    Oops…it was taken that way. (darn Kindle Fire).

  34. Autumn says:

    I prefer cloudy to sunny. Sun is so harsh. :D

  35. Lyndsi says:

    Accuweather has us at 4-8 inched monday night into Tuesday night

  36. Mary Anne Best says:

    Well, ya’all…I KNOW Jim personally and he is a straight shooter! He’s as nice a guy as you’d ever want to know. So….just know he is really trying to keep this blog clean. Quit picking on him :-)

    Keep up the good work, Jim…BTW are you reporting on CoCoRaHS yet? I keep looking for your reports, not seeing them.

    MA in REM I am READY for SUNSHINE!!!

  37. Jim says:

    Mary Ann I have snow in Kentland. Might be lake effect. Covering ground a little. Light snow 27 degrees in Kentland.

  38. Jim says:

    Mary Ann. Thanks. Not yet getting set up for reports. Listen it seems this weather blog has turned into a blog where we seem to try to find fault with others man this is a shame. And yes MA I take exception to people commenting on issues that they have no idea what they are speaking of. Well that being said. Looks like snow next week can’t wait for Chads update. Stay warm MA Jim

  39. Jim says:

    Lyndsi. What area you In?

  40. Jim says:

    Lisa you are right however there does come time when comments made by people toward others spark my defense of others. I will defend anyone. I am a straight shooter that said dint want to chase good people from blogging so continue to report that’s really what this blog is about. Jim

  41. Jim says:

    Hey MA did you see Lyndsi saying 4-6 inches? WC in agreement with snow for us as is chad wonder what’s up?

  42. RON says:

    NWS has released a map for up to 6″ of snow for our area into Wednesday morning!!

  43. Teri says:

    Snow flurries in Lafayette, temp is 27.9*

  44. Duane C says:

    Fox 59 is calling for snow. Accuweather and NWS too. I am guessing Chad will update and increase his totals a bit too. I hate to say it but i think temp may put us in the mixture if all precip again. Thus lowering our possible snow accumulations.

  45. Jim says:

    Kentland. .2 snow temp 27 degrees

  46. Jim says:

    Ron what area are you in? Duane I see that also !

  47. RON says:

    Crawfordsville, Jim

  48. charlene says:

    I am not going to post anything more then weather related information on here any longer…I will be a stooge always but if anyone wants to follow me on facebook or via email I would be honored..my email address is lafinbrat765@aol.com…let me know in the subject box who you are…please …. Light snow here today…not even coating the grass. Have a great weekend everyone …God Bless ;)

  49. Lisa says:

    Jim, I actually love snow, too. So today’s snow shower made me smile from ear to ear. I am hoping for some snow to shovel, too, but it always seems to come when we have big appointments to keep out of town. It figures. :) I want my son to get home from college today and then it can snow all it wants! :) Just hope the “predicted” accumulation for next week doesn’t mess up our ISTEP testing in our areas schools. The DOE won’t be happy.
