Be careful out there today - streets and sidewalks glaze ice

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.

    oh man, thanks for the heads up Beeb! I am one who hates driving in the snow, yes i've lived here all my life but i still cannot do it lol. I shall be driving super slow this evening. Stay safe!

    Thanks Mousie! great suggestion.
    UPS left a package last night for my upstairs neighbor...
    in the back yard! Good thing it didn't rain.

  • Good to know. Walking through the neighborhood a couple of days ago I saw packages on porches and on stoops all over the place. Several large packages were just leaned up against apartment building doors right on the sidewalk of a busy street. I'm amazed anyone gets anything they order!

Update on the Garbage pickups

All, when the garbage cans overflowed on Pine Grove/Sheridan/Marine Drive earlier this year, I wrote the aldermen and Streets and San. I got a lovely letter from Str & San:
"My office received a copy of your recent letter...Thank you for taing the time to report your concerns....the 46th Ward superintendent reported that the baskets at these locations will be serviced regularly.... and more frequently."

  • d3 NOH

    Does the ssa fund these?

  • I have received the same response to my complaints to Cappleman’s office in the early summer. A week later the garbage cans were overflowing again, and this continued all summer and into the fall.

The never ending Broadway Roscoe project has just been re-opened!

Just a couple of weeks after they finally completed the work, while leaving a messy trail of tar in our neighborhood after laying down the first coat, and finally laying down the asphalt top coat, they have just cut open 1/3 of the Southbound Street between about Roscoe and Aldine! I saw it coming last week when they made 4 saw cuts leaving a pile of dust blowing in the wind, and now they cut through the rebar and the mess and noise continues!
Alderman Tom Tunney, what happened?

  • Jeffrey Littleton Yo soy Uptown.

    It needs a road mural.

    I agree with Bus Pads. Seems like they are at, or very close to, CTA Bus stops. Looks like they also put in cross walks that look like brick (but really are just formed/colored concrete).

One day parking in Lakeview?

I have a friend who wants to come to the city (by car) and go to the museums, theaters, etc. and stay overnight. I live near Broadway/Waveland, in the heart of Wrigleyville and the parking is cost prohibitive. I looked at some of the garages and the one on Broadway charges $45 for 24 hours - ouch! Street parking is limited to 3 hours.
Would anyone know where someone could park for one day and overnight without paying with their life?
I also have relatives who want to visit.

  • the only answer here is spothero...it is simple, almost always significantly cheaper than regular charges and available spots all over city. Or she should plan to come on weekday mid morning and everywhere (except downtown or wrigleyville if cubs day game ) including edgewater you will find open free street parking. If either of those options dont work i suggest she use alternate form of transportation to get to the big city

  • Mute Mute Me

    Just offer someone who.lives there a couple bucks for a 24 hr parking pass. Why don't you go get some from your alderman office?
