I suppose if you weren't BORN before 1979 you don't have memories, but if you lived in the Quad Cities back in '79, you'll never forget the winter we survived! I was living here, just a couple of years on the radio at the old KSTT-AM, and let me tell you---I didn't drive for a week!
Walked everywhere--lots of people did! I think we ate most of our meals at Al's Wineburger, remember Al's?
This Sunday, the Quad City Times is doing their "Big Story" about the Winter of '79---I think all of us who lived through it will enjoy it. Get a taste HERE .
