Illinois Department Of Transportation International dump truck plowing snow and spreading rock salt. Glenview Illinois USA. Tuesday, February 1st, 2011., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
I took this photo on Tuesday, February 1st, 2011.
This was the day, that the infamous Chicago Blizzard of 2011 hit, and dumped a record 20.9 inches of snow across the entire Chicagoland area.
I took this photo driving northbound on Illinois U.S Route # 21 / Milwaukee Avenue, in north suburban Glenview Illinois.
The National Weather Service was on "High Alert", and many Illinois Department of Transportation heavy duty snowplow trucks were on the roads early.
This photo was taken around 10:45 AM, just a few hours before the big snow would start falling.
