Blizzard of 2011 - Southside of Chicago My View

The snow finally stopped at 1:00pm. So I decided to go outside to remove the snow from my car. It was unbelieveable. Here is a view of the Blizzard of 2011. Heavy photos.





































So, there is nothing left to do but wait. Wait until the trucks come to move some of the snow.

This is my world right now. This is life.

  1. I didn't know you were in Illinois too!! Your pictures look very similar to mine except we're out in the country. My poor little apple trees are buried up to almost their very tops! I was thinking I should be sewing since I'm stuck inside for awhile. :)

  2. It's pictures like those that make me very happy to live in the Southwest and not Chicago (although Chicago has many, many good things!). Still way too cold here at 9 degrees but not too much snow build up.

  3. I know you probably honkered down with the sewing machine. I certainly hope we don't get any. Stay warm.

  5. I used to live in NE Indiana ... and I don't miss sights like this one bit! I do wish you happy sewing while waiting to be dug out, and hope y'all's heat and power stay on.

  8. That is A LOT of snow! If you don't have to telecommute, plunk yourself in front of your sewing machine and have a good ole time.

  9. Wow! I saw this on the news this morning.. You guys got hit hard with the snow. Today was very bad in NY we got hit with sheets of ice all over the streets and sidewalks. It was very dangerous going out today.

  10. I want a blizzard so I can have a sew day.
    Here in MPLS.

    I had to giggle. You shoveled your car beautifully, but there was so much snow AROUND your car, I wondered where you were going to be able to drive to.....if at all.

  16. I'm in the south suburban area and I guess I will venture out to the store today. I stayed in yesterday and sewed a little. Good luck getting out on the street though.

  18. This is why I only lived in Chicago for 1 year and only visit between April-September, couldn't take the winters, you guys are of hardy stock to deal with that. Be safe and stay warm.

  22. I everyone in your family is doing ok. Be safe!

  23. Wow! That is a lot of snow. You must have been so cold out there while getting the snow off of your car. We were supposed to get snow and then didn't. The kids were so disappointed. We did get ice, though. There were 800 accidents on the road in less than 24 hours in our city.

    You look gorgeous in your earthtone Simplicity dress. Great colors for you.
