Chicago 2011 Blizzard – Lake Shore Drive Shut Down

 

 

This is the situation of my car as of this morning, and this is as close I’m going to get to the outside world today.

Go Chicago!

Lake Shore Drive was a disaster area overnight, as motorists found themselves stranded for up to 12 hours and ended up in the hospital. Before the city shut down the Drive, traffic had been crawling; taking about an hour to travel only a mile. Many cars were without a full tank of gas, and ended up running out. At some point people just started abandoning their cars, most people were rescued by firefighters throughout the night and taken to hospitals.
