          Yes. It’s not the snow itself. Snow is fine. It’s just that it’s the second snowfall of the year (Halloween was first) and it’s going to be 20 tomorrow so this will be ice. To early for Jan weather.

          And the roads suck. Snow plows are not fully ip to speed in terms of staffing yet. So ugh.

            It's not just snow plows, it's the fact that IL refuses to pre-salt the roads anymore to save money. I mean I know we're broke but the roads are the one thing I want the damn state to do.

            brrrr. we have a slight chance of frozen precip on the roads tomorrow. usually just a hint of it will cause the entire to shutdown since we have like... a handful of salt trucks and that's it.

            It’s awful. Luckily I got my grass cut two days ago for the final time of the season before this. This weather blows.
