  1. Sorry to report that the NWS Saturday evening snow estimates from this approaching storm have doubled. Estimate from Saturday morning of 3 – 6” has increased to 6 – 12″ in the Chicago area for the entire (multi-day) event, Winter Storm Bruce.

  2. I am on call for this storm. I work for a railroad and we cover parts of a Chicago Metra commuter line.
    We blow snow out of switches, clear platforms (for commuters) and keep the trains moving.
    We go in at 2A.M. and work till 4 P.M. which makes for 14 hour days.
    When a storm like this comes, it is bittersweet for me. I like snow and wind and I prepare accordingly. Wool and a change of dry clothes do the trick. Another thing I do is I keep a large bar of dark chocolate in my backpack. The chocolate serves 2 purposes. The sugar gives a boost to the cold body and the caffeine wakes me up a bit.
    Global warming is a joke being played on us. Hell is not hot, hell is actually freezing cold. Stay safe everyone.
