The snowstorm that dumped nearly two feet of snow on the country's third largest city Sunday night and into Monday was has been hailed as the fifth largest winter storm in that city's history. But still some Chicagoans still didn't let the white stuff hold them back.
In a perfect example of just how relentless Windy City residents are when it comes to overcoming the odds of freezing temperatures and snowy road blocks, one resident posted the following video to YouTube Monday showing a Ford F150 truck literally towing a semi-truck out of the mess it managed to get into. It happened about 8 miles northwest of downtown Chicago.
According to the video description, the semi-truck had been stuck for hours until one Good Samaritan driving a "Ford tough" pickup came to the rescue. The F-150 struggles at first, its tires spinning despite the truck not yet moving. Moments later, in what is a sight to behold, the "small" pickup appears to effortlessly haul the multi-ton tractor-trailer to a surface much easier to navigate.
Watch as the incredible feat unfolds on camera:
