Digging out from Chicago's Blizzard of 2011. Glenview Illinois USA. Thursday morning, February 3rd, 2011., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
2011 has been a very interesting year so far weatherwise anyway.
With Chicago and many other parts of North America's mid section experiencing extreme 94 degrees plus heat waves with 100 degrees plus dangerous heat indexes...it's almost hard to believe that Chicago was digging out of a severe snowstorm just a few mere months ago back in February.
This photo was taken in Glenview Illinois, on the morning of Thursday, February 3rd, 2011.
The infamous Chicago blizzard of 2011, dropped a record 20.9 inches of heavy and wet snow accumulation during an almost 24 hour period begining on the afternoon of Tuesday, February 1st.
Just like it was in 1979 after Chicago's heavy snow accumulations from the big blizzard had melted, Chicago soon experienced a very hot summer in it's wake.
Chicago weather. Ya just got to love it I guess.
