- Salters went out around midnight, and we switched to plowing around 1:30 a.m.

- The Grobschmidt Senior Center is also closed on Monday.

You need to get people that have corner lots to shovel out the corner so people can get through.
Yes! That includes the corner of Rawson and Chicago.
I think the mayor and Alderman should shovel out all the fire hydrants in their district / city . Maybe their wives/ Children can help them !!
