The city of Chicago Illinois USA and it's surrounding areas in the midwest, have been undergoing a deep freeze condition since early Febuary of this year. With days on end of outside temperatures at either above or below zero degrees farenheight, and bitter windchill factors, the city of Chicago has been experiencing numerous problems with broken water main pipes and frozen fire hydrants. Seen here heading north at the intersection of north Broadway and west Granville Avenues, is a tractor / trailer dump truck from the Chicago Department of Water Management. He is more than likely heading to a water main repair site. Flooding and extreme ice conditions on city streets have brought hardship to the windy city during one of the worst winters that Chicago has seen in a number of years. Hurry springtime! Please.
