Photos: The Chicago Blizzard of 2011

While most of us stayed inside during this past week’s blizzard, a few intrepid souls ventured out into the wintery mess to find beauty and capture the story for those of us less adventurous. I invited them to add their photos to The Local Tourist’s Flickr group. Here are my personal favorites, and you can see more on Flickr.
