Southbound Glenview Fire Department Pierce fire engine. Glenview Illinois USA. Tuesday, February 1st, 2011., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
I tok this photo last year during My lunch break, in north suburban Glenview Illinois USA.
The date is Tuesday, February 1st, 2011. It is late morning, and already the National Weather Service has been broadcasting a severe snowstorm watch for the entire Chicagoland area. Yes folks, this was the day of the infamous Chicago Blizzard of 2011, wich would dump a record 20.9 inches of snow on the entire Chicago area, begining around 2:15 in the afternoon and snowing all night.
This Pierce fire engine from the Glenview Fire Department, is viewed heading southbound on Waukegan Road at the intersection of Chestnut Avenue, in the hours before the big snow would fall that day.
