Snomageddon or Snowpocalypse?

I have one word to describe how I feel right now: exhausted. For the third day in a row I spent most of my time outside going from point to point photographing various topics depicting the third largest snow storm on record in Chicago. I was shocked this morning to learn that one of my photos from last night, shown bellow was the most viewed photos on yahoo. I was also surprised when I saw streets that had neither been plowed nor driven on.

A huge winter snow and ice storm cut a swathe from New Mexico to Maine on Wednesday, paralyzing much of the Midwest, stranding hundreds of thousands without power and stalling travelers and shipping. The two-day storm touched some 30 states and a third of the U.S. population. But it delivered its strongest punch to the Midwest, dumping a near record 20 inches of snow on Chicago. It moved rapidly toward the northeast bringing treacherous ice to New York City. REUTERS/John Gress (UNITED STATES)

Chicago, a city that usually sneers at winter, was brought to a near standstill on Wednesday by a blizzard packing the third highest snowfall in the city’s history.

The back door to my building fell victim to the storm…. the snow wouldn’t budge when I pushed on it from the inside… and that was before the temperature fell below -20C (0F).
