It's Your Stuck in Chicago Tuesday

Mother Nature is giving Chicago her all this week with the storm that came through Thursday night into Friday, then Saturday evening's snow and arctic blast that didn't end til last night. Was that it? Nope. Just a few hours passed before another storm started coming through in the early hours this morning and it's not ending until tomorrow afternoon.
