CHICAGO — It has been the snowiest three weeks Chicago has seen in 40 years, and the city had all hands on deck Monday and Tuesday to plow, shovel and dig people out.
The winter storm warning that blanketed the county for more than 24 hours ends at noon Tuesday, but with frigid temperatures to continue until the weekend, the more than 18 inches of fresh snow on the ground isn’t going anywhere.
Many residents aren’t going anywhere, either: the CTA halted Purple and Yellow Line service early Monday, and significant delays continue on the Red, Pink, Brown and Orange lines as of 9 a.m.
Both O’Hare and Midway airports have reported flight delays and cancelations, but only of about 15 minutes and fewer than 100 flights were canceled at each airport.
