Here's Part 2 of a Channel 2 News Special Report on the Blizzard of 1979 - this update coming the day after the big snow hit. Includes:

Carrie Cochran anchoring and giving status of roads; Jacqui Adams giving school district closing information (District 99 was mine! Woo-hoo! Snow day!); Bruce Roberts gives various sports' game cancellations; and Carrie Cochran reports on roof collapses including one at Voss Electric Company at 7723 South State Street.

Partial Commercial: The Suitery (rest of the break cut-out unfortunately)

Trivia Note: WBBM-TV anchor Carrie Cochran was once married to Bob Sirott. (Where is she now I wonder?)

This aired in local Chicago TV on Sunday, January 14th 1979 during the 7pm to 7:30pm timeframe.
