SNOW! The Chicago blizzard of 2011

Hi Everyone!
I just thought I'd share some fun/crazy pictures of our blizzard here that hit Tuesday night and continued through Wednesday.

I guess the snow was so bad that they couldn't use normal plows...?

I tried to squeeze into my car to start it and ended up covered in snow.

We took our dogs for a walk and the snow was piled higher than our 60 lb. dog!

We had a little time off too. It's the first time Chicago Public Schools has canceled since 1999. I took advantage of the time and worked on some new bears. I got one completed and one is on the way. I'm hoping to take some pictures this weekend and share!

Thanks for taking the time to check out my blog!

Thanks for showing these pics. We have been hearing of the horrors of this storm. Get ready for the bitter cold now. What leaves here goes there and we were about 30 degrees below normal this week with high winds, how fun.

We survived! We are now going through some cold weather Joanne The high today was 13 degrees.

And yes Peng Peng, snow sucks. No one knows how to drive and parking is awful. Gotta love Chicago in the winter time. :/
