A friend from Chicago sent me these pictures. As the wind blows, the snow ‘drifts’ up against walls, roofs and cars the way sand would in a sand storm. The first picture of the black car was taken around 9 am, and the second one later in the afternoon. There were reports of some drivers that got caught in the snow storm and trapped in their cars until 4 am Wed morning. It’s a good thing Chicago has great public transport, because many many cars on the side streets are not going to move any time soon !
