The City has launched Chicago Shovels, a portal for snow-related information -- including a real-time plow tracker during storms -- to make sure another blizzard doesn't blindside us. You might also want to check out 2inch.es, an interactive map of 2-inch snow routes and overnight parking restrictions, and its sister site, WasMyCarTowed.com.
