Luckily neighbor's son got me out with plow on his truck. LOL! I was in a serious panic. My kids were like, just relax, no one is going anywhere. I was like, "I gotta be able to get out of here!'

    Then the last winter I was there, it was below 0 for like 35 days, while still snowing a lot for most days. The cold started in October, didn't end until seriously like late June. The 30 something days were from like Dec-Feb. It was horrible. That's like not Chicago-like. It's warm, like 15-32F, it snows. It's subzero, no way. Except that year, way. Walking down sidewalks was treacherous, salt doesn't work that cold. People did move most of the snow off, making it a slippery maze. Just horrible!
    I remember the winters you're talking about. I was also amazed that it snowed as much as it did when it was that cold.

    Since I left, mostly there hasn't been those kinds of winters.
