If you’re in Chicago, step outside and take a photo right now! (47 UPDATE SESSION CLOSED)

As some of you know, most of the Chivery here is from the Midwest. Our old offices were located in Chicago before moving to California. We're all watching WGN right now and we can't believe what we're seeing. A blizzard has pummeled the Second City and we want to know what it looks like from your point of view.

All you have to do is snap a photo of the scene, then use our handy-dandy upload page to send the photo to us. We'll post them as soon as they come in. Get moving! Do it for your city!

Chive On,

John n' Bob

    • CL

            • Shaboing boing

              Reggae surfing and Bob Marley huh… all things that I live for, although I prefer to bomb hills on the longboard. Just got back from watchin The Wailers in Vegas. Its not a typical show cuz of the drunk ass golfers, but may i suggest you attend the Slightly Stoopid show at the birds nest Fri. Guna b dope as hell!

              • http://thechive.com/ mattythegooch

                I'm keeping my shit as far from Scottsdale as possible……I don't think I could handle Stoopid at the Phx. Open. They were sick as hell last year or maybe 2 ago, when they played the beach park with Pepper.

                • Shaboing boing

                  Yo comprendo. Believe me I feel the same way about scottsdale…but I dont let a bunch of douches keep me from seein SS. Do what I do and blaze a fatty…you tune out the douches and get lost in the muzak! If nothin else, check out 2morows Bad Seeds at the Marquee on the 18th. Saw them with the Wailers….SICK!

    • vintage

      10g's for the first person to get rid of this bitch…

      • Paula

        You realise the vast majorith of "Paula" posts have been "fakes" right? Because the original one is annoying… It's pretty obvious when it's the real one.

        • God

          all paulas die

          • mick

            God dammit paula

        • Paula

          I'm Paula and so is my wife!


  • XOS

    #8 dicks

    • Reesty

      my sentiments exactly!

    • jaywalke

      Funny in context, but jokes like these (Winter? It's 80 in Florida, brah!) are why the rest of the country has little sympathy when these states are hit by wildfires, mudslides and hurricanes.

      Speaking of which . . . Is there a drink called a "wildfire?"

      • Paula

        Stop being such a whiny bitch Jay! Turn that frown upside down sad pants.


        • Mustache Rider

          This can't be the real Paula b/c I laughed at this.

    • ryan

      its 57 and sunny in my part of california I am not sure where this whole winter thing is at…

  • makr

    this doesn't even look real

    • Save Me Dennis Quaid

      That's what I was thinking. This is some "The Day After Tomorrow" shit. I find it crazy that I'm in Minnesota and we're not getting any of this madness right now.

      • http://www.facebook.com/jeovanna Jeovanna Drapac

        it's REAL!!! gotta be there to believe it i guess. Buses and cars were left stranded, nobody could move.

    • John

      Its lakeshore drive folks, if the camera were angled 25 degrees more to the left you'd see Lake Michigan. All that snow blew in off the lake and the City shut down the street.

    • Oisris

      Yeah the commute home was a bitch. I made it right before all hell broke loose and it still took forever.

  • eroon

    How shitty is Paula? Much shittier than this snow storm, that's for sure.

  • aosux

    Glad I'm in AZ

    • EEEeeee

      Im with ya buddy. This is our last cool breeze before satan comes and turns on the oven!

    #5 good thing they flipped their wipers up.

    • Russ

      WTF is up that that anyway. I'm from New England and never seen someone put their wipers up.

      • James

        The Fire Department is doing it to the vehicles on LSD that are empty so they don't have to go back and check if there is anyone in it.

      • guest

        it's so your wippers don't freeze to your windshield during an ice storm.

      • Apathy

        Seriously, I live in northern Canada. -45F yesterday. NO ONE does this. It has no purpose. I cannot understand the reasoning behind this!

        • Canuck

          yup i live in N. Ontario and the first time i saw it was here too. only thing i can see come from it is that u save the rubber on cheap shitty wipers if they freeze and u gotta chip 'em off the windsheild.

      • JHL1

        I've seen a lot of people do that here in Northern Indiana this year. Didn't see it too much before this year (a few times last year).
        I don't think it really helps that much. If you get ice on your windshield you have to scrape it off whether or not your wipers are up or down. The only time I've damaged my wipers is if I run them before I scrape the ice off.

      • Ash

        I do it sometimes(Edmonton, Alberta). Generally when it's snowing, as I like to fully clear my front window/wipers so they work properly and there's no ice built-up on them.

        Easier to get all the snow out of the spot between the hood/windshield with them up.

        And yes, it can help them from freezing to the window if it's warm enough for mud/water, but cold enough for it to freeze overnight.

    • Dave23

      I always thought it was dine so when your clearing snow off the hood/windshield and going to town, you don't jack up your windshield wiper. I've done it once or twice just to be safe, but in all honesty it serves little purpose.

    • Sarah

      Ahhh – I must be a total muppet – I thought it was a way of identifying where your car was or something (what with the amount of snow practically burying it)
      In the same way some people have those arial toppers when in big car parks (might be a UK thing – I dunno)

    It's kinda nice for a change that the crappy weather went south of me up here in Wisconsin… Only downside is that Avenged Sevenfold had to postpone their concert that was here tonight because they were performing in Moline, IL last night.

  • James

    And tomorrow we get -25F wind chill and a morning rush hour commute of -15F.

    • josh
