A look at Chicago's beaches after this week's winter storm

CHICAGO (WLS) -- A winter storm dropped snow across the Chicago area Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning. As a result, high waves caused some problems along the city's lakefront.

ABC 7's team took photos of beaches along Chicago's shoreline before and after the winter storm.

In the city, 1.4 inches of snow had fallen at O'Hare Airport and about 1.8 inches of snow had fallen at Midway Airport. In the suburbs, Woodridge received 3.2 inches of snow, Harwood 3 inches of snow and 2.5 inches of snow in Chicago Ridge, DeMotte, New Lenox and Valparaiso.
