While temperatures accompanying a Polar Vortex that swept through the Chicago area the last week of January were beyond chilly, BRC team members definitely welcomed the sight of chili.
Record low temperatures were nearly reached as wind chills approached 60 below zero.
The Belt provided chili to all of its employees on Jan. 25 and 30. With Arctic temperatures still persisting Jan. 31, cream of chicken and rice soup was served up courtesy of the railroad.
Administrative Assistant Cindy Homan organized the meals.
