Chicago downtown is seen through Icicles during a cold weather day in Lake Shore Drive in Chicago, Friday, Feb.1, 2013. A February hasn’t opened this cold here in the 17 years since 1996. The combination of bitterly cold temperatures, hovering at daybreak Friday near or below zero in many corners of the metro area, plus the biting west winds gusting as high as 30 mph, are producing 15 to 25-below zero wind chills, readings as challenging as any Chicagoans have encountered this season.
