We headed north to photograph the blizzard that hit Illinois. This was one of the bigger storms in recent memory for a large stretch of the United States.
I have been posting on Beau Dodson Weather on Facebook – just search Facebook for that page.
We experienced some of the most intense blizzard conditions I have ever witnessed. Winds were gusting into the 40-55 mph range most of the evening into the wee hours of the morning. Several times visibility could be measured in the hundreds of feet. Ton of blowing and drifting snow. Was difficult to walk in the more intense wind gusts – not to mention the blinding snow as it would strike you in the eye.
Jason Darnall and Adam Darnall also drove up to be in the storm.
