Polar Vortex

We are getting slammed with snow and cold in Chicago this year. The cold especially seems way out of line and I've lived here my whole life. Weeks at a time near 0º with wind chills frequently dipping to between -30º and -40º.  These images of Lake Michigan (from Sheridan Road / Howard St.) could easily pass as something from the Arctic circle (I've never been there but I've seen pictures).
