maddogdelta: This was the block I lived on during the Blizzard of 77...I was on the other side of the street. The house in the picture was next to a golf course, and the wind just picked up all the snow from the golf course and piled it on the row of houses.
Muta: bighairyguy: skinnycatullus: My family moved from Tennessee to Chicago in 1978. Now that was a nasty winter. My Southern-born parents were NOT amused. I was 4, so I didn't really notice.I moved to Chicago from Atlanta in January 1978, and they set an all time snow record that winter. I said to myself, if I made through that, I could make it through anything. The following winter, those records were broken, and the blizzard of '79 was the centerpiece. I kept my mouth shut after that.I had a paper route in '78. Normally collecting was a pain in the ass because half the people wouldn't answer the door. Most people just didn't want to pay for their paper so they chose to screw over the 12 y.o. paperboy. Anyway, the during the '78 snow I went out door to door with a shovel. Everyone answer their door then I told them I was there collecting for the paper. Some people I hadn't seen in over 6 months.
