Good Afternoon,
 
A long duration snow event will be starting later today and continue into Sunday night. Steady snow is expected to begin falling after 6pm tonight and continue until about 11am Sunday. Snow may then pause briefly until re-intensifying after 12 noon on Sunday. Snow will fall steady until 8 or 9pm Sunday night.
At this time, total snowfall for the Evanston area is expect to be between 6-8”
Parking restrictions are anticipated for Sunday night (snow route parking ban) and Monday/Tuesday (snow emergency)
 
Public Works has been monitoring this storm for the past several days.
 
Crews are currently anti-icing all main and secondary streets. Public Works crews are ready to begin treating all streets as soon as conditions require. Crews will be working “around the clock” starting at 5pm tonight to clear streets, sidewalks and parking lots.
 
More updates will follow.

 This is not my fault.

Good Afternoon,
 
Snow is still expected for this weekend. Snow will begin as flurries between 5 and 7pm Saturday building into a steady snow after 8 or 9pm. Snow will be steady until about 12 noon on Sunday and then taper off to light snow or flurries. Snow will then intensify after 2pm Sunday and continue until about midnight.
Total snow accumulations are anticipated to be in the 5-7” range in Evanston.
Parking restrictions are possible later in the weekend.
 
More updates will follow tomorrow.

Here is one of those reports from our friend Jim Maiworm - I find this one depressing. Just saying.

Good Afternoon,
 
More snow is on the way. Snow is expected to begin falling Saturday afternoon and to continue thru Saturday night into Sunday morning. With another round of snow expected Sunday night into Monday morning.
More details will be shared as the forecast firms up but, currently, it looks like 2-4” of snow Saturday night into Sunday morning and possibly 3-5” Sunday night into Monday morning.
 
Additional snow may fall on Tuesday followed by very cold temperatures with another larger snow possible next Friday and Saturday.
 
Public Works is monitoring forecasts and will be sending periodic updates.

Thank you for helping with the new light by Target.
Who can I contact about a 'Pedestrian Crossing' sign for the crosswalk on Howard St between Wolcott and Clyde ?
I've tried 311 but they emailed me a phone number for the City of Chicago and when I called, it was someone's personal phone.
Any help is appreciated.

Lisah - well I posted the engineers report to me - when I complained I received this:

Hi Alderman Rainey:
 
The traffic signal at Howard & Target Access Drive was turned on and tested this morning/ afternoon. According to the federal guide lines (Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Device – MUTCD) when a new traffic signal is installed at an intersection that had no signal before, flashing red is required to alert the travelling public of the new signal for three days. Given the traffic on Howard and also the Holiday season, I have told the contractor to resume normal signal operations as of Friday morning around 10 a.m. Sorry for the inconvenience.
 
If you have any question, please let me know.
 
 
Thanks

 Hello eighth orders, I have a question for you: can anyone recommend someone to make and deliver custom gift baskets in the area? A friend from out of state needs to get something put together for a colleague and it would be delivered to Lake Forest. All suggestions welcome, thank you so much in advance!

Is this your vehicle? It is parked on Barton between Austin and Hull and has not moved for a week. The city would like to trim the parkway tree, but cannot because of this car. The car is registered to an address in North Evanston and no one on our steet knows who it belongs to. The City has now posted signs for tree work, if the car is not moved, it will be towed.

Coming home on McCormick just an hour ago, a very statuesque wolf standing in the middle of the road, near Bridge Street. I have seen many coyotes around and pretty sure this one was a wolf. We made eye contact. It looked like those wildlife calendars. WOW!

Good morning,

Our first measurable snowfall of the season will impact the Evanston
area today. Snow flurries will begin falling around 9am building into a
steadier light snow around 11am. Snow of varying intensity will continue
until about 4 or 5 pm before ending mixed with some rain or drizzle.
High temperatures today will be around 38 degrees. Pavement temperatures
are currently around 40 degrees.
Total snow amounts on grass in Evanston will be around 2" but on
pavement (because of the warm ground temperatures) we are only expecting
a slushy 1/2" to 1" total. No parking restrictions are expected.
Public Works has a full crew on standby ready to treat streets, parking
lots and sidewalks as soon as conditions require. No pretreatment of the
streets occurred due to the warm ground temperatures and the initial
melting that is expected.

More updates will follow if required.

Update: Got Sam via text. He came over & with the aid of a handy-dandy dongle, confirmed the outlet & wall circuitry were intact and the problem is with the microwave.

Do you know how lucky we are to have this guy in the neighborhood? VERY! THANKS SO MUCH SAM!!!

So, I woke up this morning to no microwave. circuit breaker popped open on the panel in the basement; I tried to close it but it opened right back out again. I unplugged the microwave from the wall, closed the breaker, confirmed oven & kitchen light worked again. tried the "1/2-second test" of plugging the microwave in for 1/2 second & pulling right back out...and no sooner made contact than a nasty spark from the outlet, and "popped" open at the breaker box I remain.

Electrician anybody? Sam Goss is this up your alley?

Thanks all, happy weekend otherwise.
