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.
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).
I went out today and took photos of Chicagoans weathering the beginning of what could be one of the top five worst winter storms to hit Chicago. Over 50cm (20 inches) of snow could fall by the end of the storm.
Model Jason C had to tough out a 70-degree air temperature on this fall day when he washed his jeans and my hoodie in Lake Michigan.
I think it took about 20 painful takes to nail this challenging image. By the time I had the shot, the models torsos were red and there hair was covered in dust.
