Road crews have been working through the night in an effort to clear streets of more than a foot of snow that has fallen since early Sunday morning.
Latest totals from around Sangamon County range from 13 to 15 inches, shattering records for this time of year. Most schools in the area are closed today, and it’s a good idea to call ahead before venturing out for other activities.
In addition, a snow emergency remains in effect for Springfield… vehicles may not be parked on designated snow routes until Wednesday, or until the snow emergency declaration is lifted.
Springfield Mass Transit District buses will not be running until at least 9:45am Monday.
But take heart… temperatures will be in the mid- to upper- 50s by next weekend.
