February storm blankets village with the white stuff

As of early morning Wednesday, reports indicated more than 8 inches of snow had blanketed Hinsdale. By the end of the day another 4 or more inches were expected. Village crews began deploying trucks at 3 a.m. and already had made several passes across many streets in town. A bobcat with a brush attached was at work at the train station clearing off the platform. Not many stores were open Wednesday morning. This lone pedestrian crosses First Street and Bob Wood makes his first pass of the day clearing snow for many of the businesses on First and Washington. (Jim Slonoff photos)
