On one of the coldest days on record, I woke up to see a street full of water running towards my driveway. A water main had ruptured two blocks away … uphill!
As the top layer of water began to freeze, cars drove through the slush causing the water to re-freeze and create a mess.
Diligent workers from the Buffalo Grove Water Department came to brave the cold to patch the ruptured pipe.
It took a backhoe loader and several plow trucks over two hours to clear the 6+ inches of snow, ice, and slush that had accumulated in the street and driveway aprons.
The entire neighborhood was grateful for their efforts in restoring water service and clearing the roads … all in temperatures of -20 with 20-40 mph winds making it feel like -50. #BGPW
