Blizzard 2011


So I was searching for videos and pictures of the Blizzard of 2011 on the local news page, and I came across this picture. The caption read, "Woman thrown to ground from wind gust." (It actually read "women" but I decided it was a typo, as I didn't spy any other women on the ground in the picture.) The caption subtext was, "Just as I stepped outside, a wind gust literally took this woman's feet out from under her. I helped her get to the parking garage and she was shaken up, but OK." 

I'm just glad they took the picture. I laugh so hard every time I see this picture.

Hahahaha! At first I thought you took this picture of some random person you saw splayed out on the pavement. I am so glad the helper stopped to take a picture before said helping. It's hilarious!

One more comment: her shoe choice was a mistake. I hope she has learned her lesson.

Thats hilarious. Reminds me of the days at BYU-I when we used to sit by the second floor windows of the science building and watch people slip on the ice. Enjoy your first official Chicago blizzard!
