CBS 2’s Steven Graves took a trip to Hyde Park, where neighborhood streets saw a fresh coating of snow.
Some people were shoveling again as the snow fell, in an effort to get ahead of the work on Sunday.
The city’s Department of Streets and Sanitation, meanwhile, dispatched 211 snow plows and salt spreaders to keep arterial streets and Lake Shore Drive clear.
All in all, people say seeing all of this snow is getting old.
“Here we go again. After a couple of days ago when we had 14 inches of snow of whatever it was – yeah, you know, it’s frustrating,” said Tom Mendel. “But we’re in Chicago. We’ve been lucky for the last couple of years.”
“I feel like we’ve gotten more snow in the past few weeks than we have gotten like literally all last year,” said Deja Johnson, “so just the combo of it snowing back to back to back is kind of depressing.”READ MORE: Police Officer Responding To Shooting, Struck By Bullet Fired By 15-Year-Old Gunshot Victim
