Chicago residents have long found creative ways to preserve winter parking in their neighborhood. The 2013-14 season has so far registered 24.4 inches of snow, making it the snowiest of the past 13 years. The 50 hours of on and off snowfall since New Year’s Eve produced the biggest accumulation of snow here since the Ground Hogโ€™s Day blizzard in 2001.

It’s a Chicago thing.
