January 31-February 2, 2011 Snowstorm

The two photographs show abandoned cars on Lake Shore Drive in Chicago. Traffic came to a halt on Lake Shore Drive at the peak of the storm and city officials had to rescue the drivers and passengers.
The map on the left shows the total snowfall from the late January, early February snowstorm that travelled from Oklahoma up into the Great Lakes region. Almost two feet of snowfall occurred in the path of this system and combined with sustained high winds created blizzard conditions.
