Beginning late on Monday, January 31, and continuing into early Wednesday morning, over 20 inches of snow fell on Chicagoland. This was the third heaviest snow fall for this area in recorded history. Wind gusts near 50 mph made things even more exciting. Cary snow plows gave up trying to clear my street on Tuesday afternoon and waiting until the wind died down. I was off work on Wednesday, of course, and spent most of the morning shoveling my driveway, which I accomplished long before the plows had done their job. Our mailbox was under the mound on the right of the photo with just the door visible.
