Old Man Winter Just Wont Let Go
Old Man Winter just doesn’t want to let go this year! Even though meteorological Spring started on the first, you’d never think it when we take a look at Chicago’s Tuesday morning commute.
Well before sunrise, the snow was falling heavily over the Windy City, but luckily for commuters, the roads stayed relatively clear of accumulation and driving to work went as usual for most. As the sun came up, the clouds were hanging low over the city, obscuring the impressive skyline and making the city seem a little smaller, for a while.
In Greenville, Michigan, it was a slightly different story. The much smaller city had much more snow and it was definitely sticking to the roads. There was good news for commuters, though, the sand trucks were out early, treating the main roads to try to stay ahead of the fast falling flakes that threatened to slow down the morning’s work travel.
Utility crews were already working to solve problems the heavy snow was causing, stores were open for business and folks were shopping in the worst of the weather, too. They’re used to it, it is Michigan after all!
So as we wait for Winter to finally give way to Spring, we’ll be keeping you up with the latest on the changing conditions across the country right here.
