My kind of town, Chicago is...
Unrelenting snow + 60MPH winds + thunder + lightening + hail = ThunderSnow 2011. It doesn't look like we'll beat 67's record of 23" but it will be close. I remember the Blizzard of 1967. I was 12 years old and spending my time either shoveling neighbor's walks or sledding off the top of the garage roof. I swear I'd be sledding off our roof today if I could manage to get up there! Dear 25 year old snowblower: thank you for starting. You are awesome.
|I can still see out the front windows...barely.|
|View from the kitchen door.|
|Back yard and storage shed. |
Notice where the snow ends and the top of the fence begins.
|Our front "sidewalk." |
It's there somewhere. I think.
|After 3+ hours of clean up with another 3 or so more to go.|
