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.
