I just returned from being out. I was east of Ashland Ave. at about Fullerton. The side streets and sidewalks are glaze ice. Cars are fishtailing and skidding trying to stop. I tried to stop at one intersection and forget it --- my car just kept going and stopped about the middle of the intersection. It was that way all the way until Western, where it's not so bad, but is still wet and looks icy in places.
Bicyclists are having a very hard time of it. They skid if they try to slow down or stop, and then when they put their foot down they slip.
So far the main streets are just slushy and are safer.
