Berwyn Public Works dump truck with snow plow. Berwyn Illinois. January 2008., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.

What do You do with a snowplow equipped Ford dump truck from the Berwyn Department of Public Works when it is mild outside and no snow to be plowed anywhere? Easy! Just fill the dump body with asphalt and go out and patch a few potholes in the street.
I took this photo back in early January of 2008, at the intersection of South Harlem Avenue and West Windsor Street, in west suburban Berwyn Illinois.
One week after I took this photo, a heavy lake effect snowstorm would strike the greater Chicagoland area. Better keep the plow on for now. You can never tell when the snow may come.
