Snowstorm déjà vu

Just in case anyone forgot during our Jan.31/Feb. 1 "Super Bowl" blizzard, it was also the fourth anniversary of the 2011 blizzard that dumped 21.3 inches on O'Hare Airport, the third largest in Chicago area history (after 1967 and 1979). The 2011 "storm of the century" started on Feb. 1, so the Groundhog had to battle his way out the next day.

OP Driver - FALSE, a number of side streets on the west and north west side of Chicago are practically impassible as of this AM, not to mentions alleys. Main streets are very clear in the city, but they are jammed with people as no one can cut through a side street. Those are facts....Op/RF should be catching up, but it is the 5th largest snowfall recorded

Why does Oak Park have such an issue with snow removal. It is understandable that it takes time to clear the snow but once you exit OP past Roosevelt, North, Harlem or Austin the streets are clear. It is currently 48+ hours later and our roads are still a mess. We legislate helmets for 16 yr old bike riders, install posts in the middle of Jackson so you drive on the right side of the road but snow removal isn't a public safety issue? Guess we don't pay enough taxes?

My alley is still a glacier, impossible to go through. There is TIF $ for friend and family businesses, but not for basic services.
