The city of Chicago was brought to a standstill during the blizzard that began on January 12, 1979 and didn't end for over 39 hours.

The blizzard dropped over twenty inches of snow from Rockford, to Chicago and northern Indiana. As you'll see in this video, shared by, cars were completely buried. P{people could dig them out from under all the snow, but where were they going to go? It would take several days for road crews to remove the snow from the roads. When the snow finally stropped falling, which was January 14, 1979, there was twenty-nine inches of of it on the ground. The clean up effort was massive.
