According to one poll, an overwhelming majority of Chicagoans think the city did a good job responding to the Blizzard of 2011.

The Chicago Tribune poll indicates nearly three-quarters of those surveyed, 73 percent, gave the city an overall passing grade for how it handled the storm.

The biggest story from the storm was the trouble on Lake Shore Drive and all of the stranded cars. However, just 20 percent of respondents said it was the city's fault. Approximately 29 percent blamed the drivers for getting on the Drive during the storm. About 40 percent said neither the city nor the drivers were at fault.

When it came to getting snow out of the neighborhoods, 59 percent said streets were cleared as well as could be expected, while 38 percent said they were not.

More North Side residents said they believed the city did a better job clearing the streets as compared to South Siders.

The poll surveyed 591 registered Chicago voters and has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percent.
