Bankruptcy Courts Re-Open After Blizzard February 2 2011 Chicago Illinois


Bankruptcy Courts Re-Open After Blizzard February 2, 2011. The Blizzard of 2011 in Chicago, Illinois only shut down the courts for one day. Court is in full swing for February 3, 2011. 18 inches of snow at Midway, 17.1 at O’Hare Midway Airport recorded 18 inches, snowfall at O’Hare set a record for the most snow recorded in Chicago on any single February day, and shattered the previous snowfall record for Feb. 1 — a mere four inches, set back in 1967, according to the NWS.

The blizzard even knocked WBBM Newsradio 780 AM broadcast on and off the air for at least an hour, associate producer Brad Robinson said. Chief Judge Holderman has closed the Northern District of Illinois Dirksen Courthouse Wednesday, February 2, based upon the expected blizzard. The Court noted that ECF will remain available.
Chicago closed its public schools for the first time in 12 years and shut down Lake Shore Drive, where hundreds of motorists were stranded for 12 hours after multiple car accidents on the iconic roadway.On Wednesday morning, Lake Shore Drive looked like rush hour had been stopped in time. Three lanes of cars cluttered the road with snow reaching as high as the windshields. Some cars were almost completely buried. Others filled with snow that engulfed dashboards and steering wheels after doors were left ajar.Bulldozers worked to clear the snow from around the cars before tow trucks plucked them out of snow drifts one by one. The operation likely would take hours: At least 1,500 cars awaited rescue.
