The 13 things you find after the snow melts

In Chicago, spring is not so much a time of renewal so much as discovery. Here are the typical pieces of garbage you see on the ground right about now.

Winter is over! Technically. Recent warm-ish temperatures have finally melted away the mounds of dirty plowed snow that piled up for months. Among the many spring events in Chicago: We can again eat and drink outside on patios and rooftop bars, the crocuses are popping up and, unfortunately, you encounter such unwelcome sights as a crusty pair of underwear that's been hiding outside your apartment since New Year's Eve. Peeling the snow away from our sidewalks is like looking under the cushions of a frat house sofa—you really don't want to know what's under there. 

Here are the top 13 things you'll find now that the snow has melted.
