It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas — indoors and out. As of 8 a.m. this morning Evanston had received about 2 inches of snow.
Meanwhile, on Friday, before the storm hit, workers were rushing to decorate the tree in the lobby of Evanston's tallest building — the 1603 Orrington tower.
Assistant Public Works Director James Maiworm says light snow will continue for a while yet, tapering off around 11 a.m. after delivering an additional half inch.
Maiworm says Public Works has a full complement of plows on the streets and will be plowing main streets as well as residential in an effort to get the city cleaned up by 7 p.m.
An additional crew may be called out for the overnight hours to continue cleanup if necessary.
At this time, he says, no parking restrictions are expected.
