If you've looked outside you window in the past few minutes, you've discovered that a fast-moving snowstorm arrived right on scheduled about 2:30 p.m.
Evanston's assistant public works director, James Maiworm, says the snow should be over by 4 or 5 p.m. and leave behind a half-inch to an inch on the ground.
He says crews have been out spreading anti-icing chemicals on main and secondary streets all morning that workers are on standby to start moving the snow once it starts accumulating.
Heads up, though. We could get several inches of snow Saturday and an even larger storm may hit next Tuesday or Wednesday.
