Englewood Faces Chicago 2011 Blizzard

THE BLIZZARD IS HERE!!! Early Tuesday morning the snow began falling and by 3pm Chicago was covered in more than 20 inches of snow. In any other citiy, this would be highly unusual, but Chicago is known for its unpredictable weather. This storm of 2011 rivals its predecessors of 1967, 1979 and 1999.

The sounders, bulletins, traffic updates, and cancellations at O’Hare and Midway Airports may not be a shocker to many Chicago residents who experienced previous blizzards in the past.

Few Englewood residents have come out of hibernation to unbury their front porches and sidewalks along the deserted, snow-bussled streets that immoblized many travelers citywide.

Due to slow city plow operations many vehicles have gotten stuck in the snow.

CPS schools and City Colleges have closed due to the weather, but anticipation and excitement is thick in the air as many students and residents enjoy the day off from work and school.

City officials have urged Chicago residents to stay indoors and avoid driving if at all possible as IDOT has reported vehicles getting stuck in the snow.

Fellow Enlgewood Residents this goes without saying, be safe, stay warm, and if travel is pertinent utilize public transportation such as CTA, which is operating regular schedule.
