Thanks for sharing. I've been to Chicago several times, but only during the Summer. The city takes on a different, almost magical, look with the snow. But looking at that photos with the snowed in cars and frozen roads, I cringe to think what it's like to go to work or school on those days

These Chicago pics remind me just how much I like the place. It's definitely my most-loved American city. I think I am going to have to visit again in the spring.
