It was a month ago when we were all buried in snow. We should all take a moment to thank the workers who got the streets and alleys accessible - in Skokie the Skokie Public Works employees did a great job considering the record snow fall. The alley behind our shop was plowed and salted numerous times by the Village and even some local residents. In fact our alley was first plowed the day after the big storm.  In our business of repairing garage doors throughout N/NW Chicago and suburban Illinois we have many customers with alley garages and the streets and alleys in Skokie were cleared much quicker than many other communities.  Other communities could take lessons from the procedures which Skokie has implemented for effective snow removal. THANK YOU for a job well done.
