Chicago is having a snowday. Third largest storm since the city has been keeping records.

This is normally a 4-lane county road. The traffic lights are working but there are very few vehicles.

This is my front yard. Those orange sticks mark the edge of the driveway. That drift on the left is over four feet high (1.2 meters for the rest of the planet), the driveway slopes down.

It’s even worse in the back yard.

Not quite wordless this week but close enough.
More Wordless Wednesday.

    Wow, that’s a lot of snow. We got 2 inches of rain when everyone else was getting snow.

    I can see why you are nearly setting records out there…
    Makes me wonder how your poor birdies are faring 😦

      Lots of birds here eating the day after the storm so they must have hidden somewhere safe during the blizzard. I’m always amazed at how resilient they are.
