Chicago! Oh!!

They know how to handle snow in Chicago. But Tuesday's storm overwhelmed even the tough Chicagoans.

Lakeshore drive was filled with abandoned cars (and some whose drivers spent the night in place). The first photo looks routine, until you realize that those cars are sitting - the freeway full.

The second photo shows the same scene. Well, they don't seem to have the same number of lanes. But the latter does show what the first scene was like, according to a woman who spent 13 hours in her car!
