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.
Snowplow crews in Lake Forest and Lake Bluff worked around the clock to clean it up, reported Patch.
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.
The National Weather Service is forecasting snow this weekend, with a chance for accumulation of one to three inches. Not quite 20, though!
