Spreading rock salt during a snowstorm on North Kilbourn Avenue. Chicago Illinois. December 1st, 2006., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
I took this photograph during a heavy lake effect morning snowstorm, back on December 1st, 2006.
The snow is falling heavy and fast, being assisted by a gusty wind blowing out of the west. Not a very nice morning to commute to work or anywhere.
The equipment and manpower from the City of Chicago Department of Streets and Sanitation, is getting a real workout today.
Seen here in action, is the rear mounted salt spreader attatchment on a city owned dump truck, trying to stay a step or two ahead of the dangerous black ice and slippery driving conditions on North Kilbourn Avenue.
