2011 Blizzard - Chicago Suburbs Style!

So the worst snowstorm in memory came and went through Chicagoland last night.  It brought over a foot of snow with drifts in my yard up to four feet.  There was thunder and lightning during the worst of the storm, I've never seen such a thing.  The lightning reflected off the falling snow and lit up the air with bright blue/green light.  I went out for a Jeep joyride, but experienced no joy, only terror and horror.  For the first time ever, I gave up and drove home as the whiteout conditions and lack of a distinguishable road made it impossible to continue.  I spent four hours the next morning shoveling, and I'm now too sore to do anything but type this text.  I snapped some photos of my snowy doom for all to see here.
