    We left Chicago in July 1966. For Minnesota. Our friends and family told us we were crazy. Why move there where it was snow and ice forever? We came home for Christmas 1966. Then we returned to Minnesota on the 29th. How beautiful it was. And that is irony. We missed the blizzard. We had our own, in the next 14 years. But we missed (literally and figuratively) the two biggie’s in Chicago. Thanks for the WBEZ link.

    We (my wife, kids) just returned home to Chicago in August,1967 after I had completed two years of college in Central Indiana (IWU). That was the winter when Mayor Byrne expressed the El trains straight through from Oak Park to the Loop without stops in the Black neighborhoods. Cost her re-election. It was an awful winter. Lived through the next biggie, too. End up walking 5 miles in the second one to get home in Beverly neighborhood. Nearly froze to death.
