PHOTOS: Winter Comes to Glenview
The first snow storm of 2012 covered the village in white. Have photos? Share them here!
It’s a winter wonderland in Glenview after nearly six inches of snow fell yesterday and last night. Flurries began around 9 a.m. Thursday morning and by mid-day roads were covered in white, slowing traffic and causing several minor accidents.
Among the snow-related incidents, a school bus dropping children off in the Golf Acres subdivision near Central Parkway and Waukegan became stuck in the snow around 3:30 p.m. Glenview firefighters were on the scene to assure safety and help the bus navigate through the yet-to-be-plowed street.

Glenview’s Public Work crews were ready to go first thing Thursday morning, village officials said. They worked in two shifts— one from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. Thursday and the second shift from 11 p.m. Thursday evening through 11 a.m. today. Salt trucks are also on the streets checking main roads and parking lots.
Weather.com has issued a winter storm warning for the northern burbs until 9 a.m. and the National Weather Service predicts a 40 percent chance of snow before noon today along with wind chill values as low as zero. Wind gusts could get as high as 25 mph, so watch out for blowing snow.
