Now that we’re mostly dug out from the biggest storm in a while, it’s time for a Throwback Thursday look at the biggest storm to ever hit Evanston. Yes, sonny, the Blizzard of ’67.

Cars snowed in at a city parking lot on Sheridan Road north of South Boulevard.

Taking a break from an effort to clear a path.
