Yep, That Was A Lot Of Snow

Final snowfall totals for Chicago’s 2015 blizzard are in and we just experienced the fifth largest snowfall event in Chicago history coming in at 19.3″.  Major kudos to the City for an excellent snowfall removal plan.  Side streets are still crappy, but the major thoroughfares are clean.  Good luck to all the people parked on the streets.  Digging your car out is going to be a herculean task.  Also kudos to the CTA for a pretty easy commute as well.  There were some issues with the trains, but I still got to work on time.  But really, how the heck did you not shovel the el platform?
