WMAQ Channel 5 - NewsCenter5 At 5pm - "The Blizzard of '78" (Part 2, 1978)
Everyone remembers the great Blizzard of '79 - but how many people remember the Blizzard of 1978? Before the big snow in 1979 hit, this seemed fairly significant I guess, although not as bad as the Big Snow of 1967. Was this just a case of snow-perbole? You decide.
Here is Part 2 of some footage from the NewsCenter5 airing at 5pm on WMAQ Channel 5, with Mike Jackson, Ron Hunter, and Jerry Taft.
This part features the "5 Minutes" segment with guest Dr. Edward Winslow of the Chicago Heart Association interviewed by Norma Quarles, a report by Ron Hunter on an IC train collision, a live MiniCam report by Rich Samuels at the Ainslie overpass on the Kennedy Expressway, and a (partial) report on the troubles of travelling by car by Royal Kennedy before a technical difficulties moment cuts it short.
Commercials were unfortunately cut out from this original recording.
This aired on local Chicago TV on Thursday, January 26th 1978.
