Play • 6 min
The Chicago blizzard of 1967 struck northeast Illinois and northwest Indiana on January 26–27, 1967.  It was so impactful that it remains the greatest snowfall in one storm in Chicago history as of February 2020.  BUT - this is not the story!  It's what they did to try and remove the snow and who it affected and who did an amazing thing as a result. It's a heartwarming story today on This Day in Weather History.
