Front bus wheels caked in snow. Wheeling Illinois. Thursday morning, January 2nd, 2014., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
New Years 2014 in the greater Chicagoland area, has began on a very rough note weatherwise so far.
With a 3 day snowstorm, gusty winds, frigid temperatures and dangerous driving conditions, yesterday was a real challenge for this paratransit driver.
Many of the roads were either not plowed, or the various municipal highway salt spreading and plowing crews found that their work was futile or temporarily in vain.
I had just dropped off a small group of special needs people at a local employment work shop in Wheeling Illinois. The caked on snow seen here on my front wheels, indicates that this was definitely a lengthy and rough commute this morning.
