From potholes to falling ice, we examine the effects of winter weather on the city. We find out what road salt does to infrastructure and the environment. And Chicago Public Radio's Catrin Einhorn takes a walk on the wild side of winter ice on tall buildings. Plus, we get the story behind the story of Francis Poulenc's acclaimed 20th century opera Dialogues of the Carmelites. Our contributors from Filmspotting contemplate the notion of masterpiece. And “Dueling Critics” Jonathan Abarbanel and Kelly Kleiman preview Chicago's Spring theater season.
