The struggle continues
Word on the streets and in the news, “Dibs” is over. Chicago’s Streets and Sanitation department will be collecting any parking space savers left over by Chicagoans as of yesterday.
But you can still submit any Dibs Pics you’ve got to our Chicago Dibs Tumblr right here.
Or email Chicago Dibs at gee mail dot com and we’ll post it for you.
It’s been a rough winter for sure, but we like to hope people who’ve come to the Chicago Dibs Tumblr site have had a chance to commiserate and have a few laughs as we try to make it through the cold and snow together.
Now go ahead and get that Green Day “Time of Your Life” song stuck in your head while you and browse the Chicago Dibs archives and look back on this crazy winter.
Thanks again to everyone who’s submitted their photos or let us submit them for you!
I predict a shitload of keyed Streets and Sanitation Dept. vehicles.

Oh my gaaaawd look at those sheep barriers.
This is what you do in Chicago, right?
And you tear up when you walk by the Walgreens on Michigan Ave because that was your emergency meeting place with your parents after your first marathon, and your father had just run the last half mile with you, but you lost him when they waved him off the course just before the finish line.
…maybe just me on that last part.
Holy crap, it’s a beautiful day in Chicago!
Commander Chris Hadfield, a Canadian astronaut who has been living aboard the International Space Station since December, on Saturday tweeted another stunning photo of the Windy City from above.
Holy crap, it’s a beautiful night in Chicago!
A couple who moved into an all-white neighborhood look at graffiti scrawled in front of their home. Chicago, 1957.
I still don’t understand what the fuck is wrong with some people.
I wonder if that idiot shoveled the walk in order to show how non-committally unimaginative he was.
I find Apple’s new Maps app in iOS 6 a little unsettling. I couldn’t put my finger on it (SEE WHAT I DID THERE?) at first.
Then it hit me.
There are no people.
Major US cities are completely deserted. There are no people around Chicago’s Bean on a sunny day. There are no people on the sidewalks. There are no cars on surface streets. There are no cars on the highway.
iOS 6 shows us, in glorious detail, what our post-apocalyptic future will look like via the latest in 3D-accelerated fly-over technology.
I’ve seen the future, and it’s freaky.
Oh nothin’. Just playing around with maps and reminiscing.
Boy, the CHSH documentary crew was quite respectful of people’s wishes if this bullshit is kosher.
Hmmm… Do I want to give up the rights to my voice and likeness in all forms THROUGHOUT THE UNIVERSE IN PERPETUITY, or do I want to get on my plane home?
