There were over 200 people stuck on Lake Shore Drive for over twelve hours because these individuals refused to let snow stop them. For two days last week, the entire city of Chicago shut down. Instead of working, these busy bodies were outside shoveling the street, helping neighbors dig out their vehicles, and clear sidewalks.
Chicago for the first time in a long time felt like a community. We survived the thunder-snow-pocalypse together, and we will deal with the aftermath together. People were even kind in the long line to rent DVDs at the Redbox around the corner.
Today everyone is back to their usual routine. While it feels good to move around and be productive again, we can say we survived the storm and lived to tell the tale.
