This week, we rounded up answers to five winter-related questions:
What’s the purpose of the sand dunes along Lake Michigan in the winter? Starts at 2:20
How does salt runoff from Chicago roads affect our waterways? Starts at 5:10
How do I avoid ice falling from buildings when I see those “Caution: Falling ice” signs? Starts at 12:23
How much sun does Chicago get in the winter compared to other cities? Starts at 17:55
What are some activities I can do with my dog in Chicago when it’s freezing outside? Starts at 22:53
Answering these questions took the Curious City team on an epic journey (literally and figuratively) to an indoor doggie pool, the Neiman Marcus building on Michigan Ave. and all the way to the Gulf of Mexico.
