True Chicagoans' reaction to blizzard: #Snobigdeal

When big snowstorms hit cities people react in different ways. If you're from a city that's not prepared for snow, everything might shut down. Cars might start sliding off the roads in droves. Power lines might collapse. You might feel OK using hyperbolic terms like "Snowpocalypse" or "Snowmageddon." In Chicago we scoff at such fear mongering. Sure, snow causes a lot of headaches like canceled flights, flooded basements and potholes here, but for the most part IT'S NO BIG DEAL. That's right, #snobigdeal. Enjoy these pictures of a normal winter snow storm in a major metropolitan area.
