Photos: 'Dibs' on snowy parking spots
Chicago residents have long found creative ways to preserve winter parking in their neighborhood. The 2013-14 season has so far registered 24.4 inches of snow, making it the snowiest of the past 13 years. The 50 hours of on and off snowfall since New Year's Eve produced the biggest accumulation of snow here since the Ground Hog’s Day blizzard in 2001. Some places recorded 18 inches or more, many to the north of Chicago.
