Snow removal from side-streets in Chicago has been slower than most Chicagoans would like. Aldermen are complaining, both publicly and privately, about the situation, so we had to ask: how’s the situation in your neighborhood?
Almost afraid to ask, but what is the snow situation like on side-streets in your neighborhood?

@Suntimes side streets, side walks, bus stops. Driving by a bus stop, saw an elderly man fall just trying to stand as he waited for the bus.

@Suntimes not Terrible, but doesn't look like it's been plowed.

@Suntimes bad. Terrible. Did they even plow?

@Suntimes terrible. Snow goes at least 5 feet into street from curb. Snow still covers the Lane lines in middle of street as well.

@Suntimes around my school in Englewood it's difficult to drive around on side streets they are one lane at best with fear of getting stuck

@Suntimes I walk way more than I drive; the sidewalks in Uptown/Argyle are embarrassing.

@Suntimes Our whole neighborhood is unplowed. It's a mess by Lakeview HS, esp at morning dropoff.

@Suntimes It's a sloppy, slushy mess in my 'hood.
