At this time two years ago, things looked a lot whiter outside as the Blizzard of 2011 dumped upwards of 20 inches of snow over the Chicago region.
The snow storm caused widespread power outages, school and business closings, stranded drivers and caused a big old mess, reported the Chicago Tribune, which offers a photo gallery of the white-out of 2011.
After the blizzard, Highland Park Police responded to 34 stranded motorists or abandoned vehicles stuck in snow banks overnight.
The National Weather Service is forecasting snow this weekend, with a chance for accumulation of one to three inches. Not quite 20, though!
