I shot this while driving home in a blizzard. The National Weather Service was calling for 8-18" of snow (depending on the area.) It was a rough and SLOW commute home. (please do not get me started about how badly the suburbs suck...)

Listening to the news last nite, one would have thought we were in for a snowmageddon like what blanketed the Northeast! Reports this morning indicated that we (near O'Hare) received a paltry 7-8" (compared to 32" in the Baltimore area..)Ā  I can't even imagine that much snow on the ground at one time...
