The amount of snowfall will vary depending upon your location. Further south, more snow.

i love the snow...but id rather have 6 or more inches...1-2 just makes a mess and traffic a nightmare, so i figure why not at least give us a boatload since were gonna be miserable in it anyway lol

I left work at 4:20, got home at 7:40! Halfway home, I had an oops. I was grabbing my wiper blade to snap the ice off it, and it flung off onto the road. Had to drive about 15 miles with no driver's side wiper, not fun.

I left work at 5:15.......got home at 7:45........Usually it only takes me 35-40 mins to get home. I didn't even think about touching the expressway.......The fastest I went was when I was 2 mins from home and that was 35mph.....otherwise I was only going maybe 15 at the most. But I guess my commuit isn't as bad as others.

good advice i got from brookfield to downers grove in 25 min....
....not bad.....if you follow joe somebody that was deciding to be nice and plow the whole time i was following him down 55th and then up cass

i thought it was illegal to plow the streets with private vehicle...but that guy was a life saver

You poor Chicago suckers!

It took me an extra 30 minutes on top of my normal 30 minute commute home!

Now watch, I'll get into an accident tomorrow!

It is in my firm belief that things wouldn't be so bad if half the people on the road could actually drive. The road i live off of is 35, you had people doing 10-15 at most, others doing probably about a good 30 without a problem, the road was salted. I saw people spinning their tires going up hill because of too much gas, and others moving at a snails pace. Most people have no idea how to drive in the snow - the roads have to be salted and plowed, even then, when its raining people suck at driving. You get people driving too fast or too slow.

I just hate having to drive with half the people that do drive. You don't take your driving test when its snowing or raining, and that shows.

Sorry for my rant, its just that it took me 50 minutes (minus a gas fillup) to travel 4 miles - math says 6 mph average.....thats bad
