You gotta love Chicagoland weather. It goes from sub-zero temperatures and snow to 37 degrees and rain all within 48 hours!

I have to thank the Village of Bolingbrook & Public Works for doing such a great job of keeping our streets cleared off. Yes, I understand some people have to wait longer than others it's always going to work out that way. If you travel through other towns, you'll realize ours is so much better than all of the rest!

I don't know where you are at but our subdivision doesn't get cleared. Even when they do make a pass by it doesn't clear the street and they never salt our street. We still have snow and ice from last week in the middle of the street!

Amber, have you called about that? I hope you get better service this weekend if we get hit with a storm. I guess I have been lucky, but for the most part I think the Village does a great job of keeping the main roads cleaned off for us.
