The aftermath of Chicago's February 17th, 2014 President's Day snowstorm. Bridgeview Illinois. Tuesday, February 18th, 2014

The entire Chicagoland area suffered a very heavy and wind driven lake effect snowstorm recently on Monday, February 17th during the 2014 President's Day holiday. 5 inches of snow had fallen on the greater Chicagoland area between 9 AM and 9 PM, with a few more inches in some areas.

I took this photograph the next day, in southwest suburban Bridgeview Illinois. This photo was taken on West 83rd Street just west of the intersection of South Oketo Avenue, and shows the extent of the heavy lake effect snow accumulation.

All travel the day before, was very dangerous and time consuming, with nearly zero visibility in some areas.
