Josh: Chicago is just recently hit with Snowmageddon, one of the biggest blizzards we’ve seen in years. Through the chaos, through the madness, we are looking for some funny stories.芝加哥的冰风暴，带来混乱和疯狂，但我们也来听一些有趣的故事。
Jerod: The snow is probably about as deep as this. It had taken me an hour to shovel the sidewalk, and as I was walking back to my house, I could just kind of hear a rumble and I saw the snow plow coming. All of a sudden I saw this big wave of black, salty, nasty snow come right on to me. 雪下得好多，我花了一小时铲门前人行道的雪，正转身走回家时，忽听到大声向，道路铲雪车迎面而来，把一大团混满盐，令人讨厌的黑雪撒在我身上。
Ardy: We’re coming back from a wonderful vacation, only to find out that there are so many cancellations and what an ordeal to get home. They had to cancel a flight in Houston to get to where we needed to be because of this much snow. 我们出门度了美好的假期，回程中才发现许多飞机航机都取消了，结果花了很多时间和考验才回到家。休士顿机场才下了这么丁点儿的雪，他们就把航机取消，真是的！
Dave: So I went to the grocery store to get some supply as the snow was approaching. And I bought a big carton of eggs. And as I was heading back to the car, I slipped on some ice, fell on the ground and crushed the eggs all over myself. 我出门买食品杂货，那时雪风暴已经开始下了。我买了一整盒的蛋。当我走向车子时，我在冰地上滑了一跤，倒在地上，蛋全都破掉，撒在我身上。
Josh: Well, here I am. I feel the sun trying to peak through the clouds. Snowmagaddon is over. Spring is on the horizon, baby. 我在这儿，现今太阳好像要出来了，冰风暴已经结束，春天快来了！
