The first group of pictures were taken around my house, on 1/3/1999, after the driveway and sidewalk had been dug out. This was the second biggest snowfall (about 21" or nearly 60cm) in Chicago in 20 years, since the big blizzard of 1979.

This second batch of pictures were all taken after the year's second major snowfall, which wasn't as big as the first, but still dumped about a foot of snow, in March 1999.
