CHICAGO -- The start of the first full week of spring, and Mother Nature backhands the Chicago area, reminding us all spring is simply a calendar reference when it comes to Chicago weather.
While the roads certainly were a big problem during the morning rush, getting to them carried its own challenges, as many folks seemed to have stashed winter tools for the season.
For those having to hoof it today, heavy, wet snow really took the breath away.
And the weather surprised many – but not all. A scheduled day off of school meant one more chance to hit the hills.
And hopefully this really is the last time.
