Chicago Blizzard

The Blizzard that rocked the mid-west and produced more than 20 inches of snow for the Chicago area caused major problems for including the closure of Lake Shore Drive. Nearly 1300 vehicles were caught in the storm and were eventually abandoned effectively closing the outer drive from 67th Street on the south to Hollywood Ave in the north. The strong gusting winds made for white-out conditions, created three to four foot snow drifts and made almost all streets in the metro area impassible. The storm is blamed for a least 11 deaths and closed Chicago’s public schools for the first time in over 12 years.
