Keep the Car Running

Driving from the city of Chicago to the suburbs on a daily basis brings about several repeated moments of road rage. This is compounded on mornings like today's, when several inches of snow makes travel a grind. Anyone going from downtown to O'Hare had a tidy 2-hour-15-minute wait on the expressways. Sounds like a party!

But it really puts a crimp in the commute when a water main bursts and a damn street collapses into the earth!

This large newly-built pond used to be Montrose Ave., running through Lincoln Square and Ravenswood. The burst started overnight and caused massive flooding throughout the area. The restaurant unfortunately positioned behind the lake is El Torito, which one might assume could be closed for a bit.
