Polar Vortex | Chicago

Everyone in the Chicago area knows just how crazy winter can be, but the last week has been much worse than usual. I think we're now at 15+ inches of snow and some truly frigid temperatures. Well I consider all this to equal some pretty cool photos so I started wandering around doing what I do best.
