Difficulty of weather in Orland Park

The excessive moisture causes concerns with mold and mildew growth

While I love living in Orland Park, the weather conditions present some difficulties. The wide fluctuation of seasons create a great deal of work, expense and damage. The winters are the worst of it. The weather starts to cool of by early September, and it’s usually necessary to start up the furnace in October. We often have blizzard-conditions for Halloween. We expect snow on the grown for Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s and most likely on Easter as well. We’ve even had to shovel on Mother’s Day. The snowfall requires constant plowing and shoveling to keep the sidewalks, front steps, back deck and driveway clear. Because of the huge piles potentially blocking access to the garage, we often need to pay for snow removal. Every time I want to leave for work or drive anywhere, it’s necessary to brush off the car, scrape ice off the windshield and let the defrost run to clear the glass for at least twenty minutes. We are forced to bundle up in layers of sweaters, boots, heavy coats, hats and gloves. The temperature is typically below freezing and can drop into the negatives. The wind chill is downright dangerous. Living in Orland Park means that I never buy tickets to an event scheduled between September and May, because inclement weather can make the commute impossible. School closings, blizzard warnings and driving bans are a frequent occurrence. Once spring finally arrives, there is the threat of flooding from snowmelt and torrential downpours. We frequently suffer from lengthy power outages. While I always look forward to summer in Orland Park, the heat and humidity are a problem. The excessive moisture causes concerns with mold and mildew growth. While I’d love to open the windows and let in some fresh air, the house gets overheated and sticky. Although the summer season is short, I’ve invested into central air conditioning.
