Chicago Blizzard 2011 = Snow Day!!!

This is me standing in the middle of State Street in the heart of downtown Chicago.

Wow! It really snowed. And for the first time in 12 years Chicago Public Schools closed. We got approximately 20 inches. It is beautiful and downtown Chicago remains a ghost town. Since we had a snow day, Reid and I ventured out this morning to witness the blizzard first hand and I thought I should share a few pictures from the outing. Hope everyone is staying safe and warm in this crazy national weather!

The snow on top of Urban Outfitters is so beautiful.

Chipotle always has witty ads, but this just made me laugh.

The poor Art Institute lions were blinded by snow.

The news stands are completely covered. I don't think the news was delivered today anywhere. We actually ran into a Postal Worker who had just been sent home for the day. However, there was a bike messenger we spoke to that was still working. A bike in this weather sounds horrible to me!
