Chicago area digs out after snow storm blows through – again

Chicago’s big dig out continues tonight after a midday snow storm blew through the area.

The roads usually congested with rush hour traffic ground to a halt.
Traffic on the Dan Ryan and Kennedy Expressways were anything but express tonight.  A semi and other vehicles stuck on the ramps were to blame.
This afternoon, Mayor Emanuel greeted city workers charged with keeping roadways clear.

“We have all the salt we need,” Emanuel said. “We have all the salt we need to keep the streets paved, passable and safe for the residents and businesses in the city of Chicago.”

It’s a winter that’s taxing budgets and the patience of a usually sturdy city with big shoulders, now covered in snow.
