Default Onion Question: Fat Stems

This is only my third time growing onions and have a question about stem thickness. Some stems at soil level seem to be really thick, like up to 1.5" thick while their neighbors are pretty much about 3/4" wide. When I feel around in the soil for bulb size they all feel pretty much the same. An example is the fat one in the middle of this pic:

What does that mean? Is a good sign or bad sign? Will they cure right when ready? Storage problem? I'm on the verge of giving up growing onions as I don't have a root cellar or room somewhere in the house to store a lot of onions. Scallions are much more handy and onions are cheap at the store.
