Kirk, you're getting hosed, dude. Every school in the burbs is closed, but they kept Chicago schools open. Messed up!

BTW, I'm working from today. The roads suck, Pace isn't running, and the City of Naperville decided to take the day off from plowing.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

Roads are fine, it's the stupid people that worry me. Normal commute time, but a lot less people out there. My driveways already been cleaned off, woke at 430. I don't know what the problem is here.

The difference in roads was night and day. I go through some burbs to et to work and as soon as I hit the City I flew in. Chicago Ave was deserted 45 in 4 wheel high and I was good.

It's awesome out. No snow day here, got to work on time, got a good parking spot. Friggin' skokie hasn't even started plowing the streets yet (at least not my area).

I played an away game last night and parked the vee dub outside - FUCK ME - Burried in about 8 inches (or 3x's my johnson on a good day) of the white shit (and I ain't talkin about the stuff that smells good in night club bathrooms) - The FWD prevailed and I got right through but it took me about 15 mins to dust 'er off

I can't feel my toes. I had to wait for like 30 min for the pace bus then when I got to UIC I had walk across campus where they didn't do a very good job of plowing the sidewalks. Last time this happened, the informed everyone it was a snow day at like 4PM.

I feel your pain. I work in Skokie and they never freaking plow the streets until the snow is done.

Did you notice that too? When I left work this morning nothing was touched. Usually my driveway, sidewalk to front door and streets in the subdivison are usually plowed. RT-59 wasn't that great either.
