Doesn't surprise me. Brookfield is even further away - but not that much further. Anywhere in Dupage County would be a nightmare when the snow falls.

Brookfield would allow for commute via the Stevenson as well as southside arterials that also serve Midway -- generally less traffic clogged than relying on the Eisehbower.

Similarly DuPage suburbs that lie closer to I-55 are a good option, there is a fairly good sized contingent of researchers who work at Argonne in DuPage Co and need to get to UofC's Hyde Park Campus.
