It’s Rahm

Last night I covered the election of Rahm Emmanuel to the Chicago Mayors office for Getty Images. This city has had one mayor, Richard M. Daley, for the past 22 years. When Mr. Emanuel, the former chief of staff to President Obama, takes office it is expected to upend the politics of the city due to his harsh style, his relationships and rivals, and the enormous challenges facing the nation’s third largest city.

Blizzard 2011

After Chicago got hit with its third-biggest snowstorm on record, 51.3cm (20.2in) of snow according to the national weather service, I headed out into the streets to take some pictures. Temperatures are expected to drop to -21C (-7F) tonight, with wind chills down to -32C (25F).
