Scenes from the Ground Hog Day Blizzard 2011 in Arlington Heights

Video during the peak intensity of the Ground Hog Day Blizzard 2011 in downtown Arlington Heights and side streets north of downtown.

Whiteout conditions late Tuesday and early Wednesday brought down about 17 inches of snow to Arlington Heights. Several cars were stuck on the railroad tracks along Northwest Highway. The whiteout conditions would come and go. As an observer, one could see a whiteout occurring down the street, then seconds later the whiteout conditions would surround the observer.
