After a season of record-breaking snow and cold, the streets of Chicago are starting to look like a Mario Kart course.

The Windy City’s all-too-brief warmup was clipped Tuesday night by the latest winter storm to blow into the Midwest.

The overnight snowfall was enough to push this season’s snowfall to 79.1 inches, Chicago’s third snowiest winter on record. The last time the Windy City had this much snow was the winter of 1977-78, when it snowed more than 82 inches, the Tribune reports.

All that snow has been brutal for the city’s streets which are now marred by potholes so large, you could lose a small child (or half of an adult) in one.
