The Big Snow

So about a week and a half ago, Chicago received one of its biggest snowfalls. We had 22 inches in the city. Since I have lived in Illinois, this was by far the biggest snow day. Work and school let out early and most were closed for a good day or two, some three. The amount of snow that fell within an hour was unbelievable but what was even more of a once in a lifetime experience was the wind. It was brutal - whipping and whirling that snow around. The "thundersnow" was also something I may never see/hear again in my lifetime. It was like a thunderstorm with snow with booming thunder and lightning. It was incredible.

After being stuck inside all day we decided to take a short walk around the block. We let Austen and Adler play in a nearby park. Both of them loving the deep snow and the chance to make angels - one a little boy, another his dog. It was a Norman Rockwell kind of photo moment.
