This was our block around 3pm on Wednesday afternoon.
The Mister and I headed out into the snow on the day after the blizzard to forage for food and drinks and to relieve our cabin fever. We brought cameras and trudged happily through the snow drifts, grateful for our adult snow day.
We were able to walk right down the middle of Damen. The main streets in our area were completely clear within an hour of the last snowfall. Streets and sanitation did an excellent job if you don’t count the Lakeshore Drive snafu. Still, the only things moving on the roads, other than legs, were trucks since the side streets were completely blocked by drifts of up to six feet.
Ouch. Wouldn’t want to be the one digging this guy out. We managed to free one of our cars from the hard packed snow by Friday morning and have left the second vehicle parked for now.
I took this shot looking east down Division Street at Damen. Never have I seen the street so deserted.
I loved this storm. I loved the thundersnow, I loved the day off, I loved our walk, I even loved shoveling the front walk.
Midwest is best always, more so with twenty-two inches of snow.
