Snowy start to St. Patrick’s day for some

BOURBONNAIS, Ill. — Residents in some south suburbs woke up Sunday to a scene that looked more like Christmas morning than St. Patrick’s Day.

A band of snow swept through areas south of I-80, leaving as much as several inches of snow in Bourbonnais and other areas.

People living there said they were done with the snow.

“When I first got up around 7, my dogs didn’t want to go outside,” one Bourbonnais resident said. “I’m done with winter, waiting for it to warm up.”

Areas north of Chicago also saw a slight winter wonderland Sunday.

Snow melted by Sunday afternoon. The Chicago area can expect a warmup into the workweek.
