WINTER WONDERLAND! 2-2-11

The Chicago area as much of the country got hit by a blizzard the night of Feb. 1. We got nearly 2 feet of snow quickly overnight.

I enjoy this style houses.very natural and aesthetic.houses in my city...not aesthetic.such as a match box.cultural difference.encountered bad things here(my country):
inadequate subway,
not aesthetic ,soulless and boring buildings,
irregular urbanization,
traffic sucks...annoying big cities.
I'm lucky though.I could live a more miserable cities.

It took me from 9:30a.m until 5:30 pm just to finish shoveling. And I only live a town away from you. Wish I had some of those industrious types lurking around my house looking to make a buck.

Bummer! All that wind made it worse with the drifts.
Yeah that was nice havin' those guys come by. If we had gotten up earlier we would have missed them.

I bet you do! Fortunately this is not very usual for us. I know in the UP of Michigan it's more common.
We definitely get plenty of cold too in the Chicago area.

That's more than two feet there Bill. More like 3 feet. Our balcony looks like that but luckily I don't have to shovel or snow plow it. :-)

Well, that with the nice topping we put on it. Could be worse. Could be 1967!
And fortunately us freelance types can stay home :-)

Holy Great Mackerel in the sky. That looks back-breaking. Up here in Green Bay we got about 6 inches. I suppose I should count myself lucky. :dance:

Yeah, the further south the worse it was. Chicago got the lake effect on top.

The UP routinely gets more than back here, but not this year. Though we only have Veteran's Acres for sledding :-)

That seems like it would be enjoyable until you needed to go somewhere; however it is pretty.

Anyways, hopefully you and yours are staying safe and warm in that weather.

LSD (Lake Shore Drive) got it bad with all those people stuck. In 1967 that was a lot of the city.
