For county workers specifically, there was a lot of ground to cover. During the weekend of Feb. 10, the Will County Sheriff’s Office handled more than 85 storm-related incidents.

Those same numbers for the city of Joliet were not yet available because the pay period does not end until Thursday, but all of the city’s 39 vehicles were in use covering the main roads every two hours during the worst of the storm. The rate of the snowfall made it difficult because about an inch of snow fell every hour.
