Eh, what’s another 2.5 inches!


Evanston public works crews are cleaning up this morning after a storm that dropped two-and-a-half inches of wet heavy snow on the city.

That was considerably less that the four to eight inches that had ben forecast and only added marginally to the total of over 70 inches for the winter season.

Assistant Public Works Director James Maiworm says crews plowed main and secondary streets during the night and are focusing more on residential streets during the day today.

One problem of note from the storm — a large tree limb fell on two parked cars on Oak Avenue just south of Davis Street about 2:30 a.m. and public works crews responded to that incident.

Maiworm says we can expect cloudy and windy conditions for most of the day with some sunshine possible this afternoon.
