Blizzard 2011 - Long Grove and Buffalo Grove residents know how to have fun in the snow!    Stevenson High School and all the surrounding Buffalo Grove and Long Grove schools have closed for two consecutive days.    Almost everything was closed during the Blizzard of 2011 on February 2nd- including banks, schools,and business.  Residents of many Chicago Suburbs were advised to stay off the roads and leave the open for emergency vehicles.  With no vehicles on the streets, these High School boys from Long Grove took advantage of the plowed streets and slid down the roads tied to autos driven by their fathers.  Dogs also had a great day....Although my dog was a little hesitant at first to brave the snow, he ended up loving it. Just like I remember the Blizzard of 1967, I'm sure that my boy...
