238. Snomageddon in Chicago

Two posts in one day – this is unheard of!  I figured I’d share a few pictures of the snow storm here in Chicago while they’re still relevant.

This ended up being the third worst snow storm in the history of Chicago.  It trapped somewhere around 1,200 people on Lake Shore Drive, closed Chicago Public Schools for the first time since 1999, and gave us Chicagoan a glimpse at thundersnow (which is exactly what it sounds like.)

The boy's truck in my parking lot. If he didn't have the plow he wouldn't have been going anywhere.

My dad's car is somewhere under that pile of snow on the right.

This is the front of my parent's house. The front door was half buried.

The snow along the side walk was taller than Maxwell. He was attempting to see over them

This is in front of my parent's house. The pathway that was shoveled through all that snow.

My parent's street didn't get plowed until late Wednesday night. Their neighbors attempted the leave. They got stuck.
