This is typical Chicago. We ‘Spring ahead’ our clocks over the weekend then, after the most mild winter ever, we get a snowstorm. Embrace it…have fun in it…go sledding in it…especially is your school was closed today!!
Here’s a list of great sledding hills in the Chicagoland area. Please add your fave spot to sled in the comments and we might add it to this list below.
