Fittingly for 3:00 we have exactly 3 inches of snow.
|Bush collects snow|
|Car at 15:00|
The snow is now accumulating in cracks, like where the hood meets the body or the window meets the door. It's also just plain sticking to the vertical surface of the doors.
|15:00 - here's the street.|
Getting really bad again. It's that kind of packed snow that everything slides on - especially if you try to hit the breaks to NOT slide on things.
There's a news break on right now. They're asking people not to throw their snow in the streets. No, because the Streets and San people will need that space to throw THEIR snow.
CPS - amazingly - is having a snow day tomorrow. In my 10 years of living here, they've never once canceled school. They don't think it's safe enough for kids to go to school in this weather. However, principals, asst. principals, lunch room managers, security guards and custodians? You're all hosed. They expect you to show up anyway. Teachers and teaching assistants can stay home. I'll never understand the logic that says it's too unsafe for some people to go somewhere they don't absolutely have to be (like say a hospital or fire department), but it's safe enough for others. Oy.
