Documenting the 2011 blizzard in photos (submit yours!)

February 1, 2011

We are going to photo-document the Chicagoland area during the 2011 blizzard. So today and tomorrow, you will see familiar neighborhoods, landmarks and landscapes covered in snow. You will see familiar commutes, roadways and sidewalks altered by the falling thunder...snow. For the full blog (already in progress), go here.

We start with a photo sent in by our co-worker Jane Verwys on 02/01/11at 2:31pm. It's the fire station at the corner of Hermitage & Byron on Chicago's North Side. It's just the beginning of the storm.

And here is a slideshow put together by Andrew Gill of different vantage points from our perch at Navy Pier.

To submit photos of your neighborhood, add them to our Flickr pool with the tag #Thundersnow.
