City prepares for first snow of season

City officials are preparing for Chicago’s first measurable snow in nearly 300 days.

Charles Williams took over the Dept of Streets and Sanitation only in October. Radars, roadmaps and temperature readings could be keeping him and his snow command crew up tonight with a forecast of 1-3 inches of snow during rush hour Thursday.

At Home Depot, shoppers are stocking up on salt, shovels, gloves, windshield wiper  fluid and more. The biggest issue in the end is expected to be not the snow, but the ice.

The city reminds drivers about the parking ban 3a-7a daily snow or no snow.

    Hiya! I know this is kinda off topic however I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest writing a blog article or vice-versa?
    My blog covers a lot of the same subjects as yours and I
    feel we could greatly benefit from each other. If you might be interested feel free to send me an email.

    I look forward to hearing from you! Superb blog by the way!
