Before Monday, it had been 85 days since snow fell in the Chicago area, ABC 7 said. Snow, including some of the lake effect variety, blanketed parts of the suburbs of Chicago once again on Tuesday. Poor road conditions led to crashes and significant delays during the morning rush on major expressways including I-90, I-290, I-55 and the Tri-State Tollway.
