So, was it really that bad? I mean besides those poor souls stuck on Lake Shore Drive forced to roast marshmallows with their car cigarette lighter? For me, this storm wasn’t about an actual Snowpacalypse, this was about 20- and 30-something Chicagoans proving that they will go out to the bar in any sort of weather. This was about Chicago businesses staying open, puffing out their big, hairy, snow covered chests.

Yeah, Chicago is weather-tested and tough, at least for a big metropolis. Below is a slideshow featuring the beautiful, blizzardy streets of Wicker Park. Plus some images from the Day After Tomorrow.
