a blizzard swept through chicago last night with 40-60 mph wind gusts and a phenomenon that was ominously termed “thunder snow” which sounds like something out of the ‘ride of the valkyries’. the result was 20″ of snow, 5′ drifts and stranded motorists having to wait more than 5 hours before getting rescued on lsd. and if that wasn’t enough, here comes the -20 to -30° wind chill tonight. bundle up, chicago!
