Valentine’s Day in Chicago: The warmest, coldest, snowiest and wettest weather since 1871

by staff

“The overcast afternoon, with a slight breeze, brought city dwellers out on window shopping sprees or sent them strolling with their families to parks and playgrounds. Young couples walked hand in hand along the lake front. In the suburbs, home owners went to work washing the family car, sponging the windows, inspecting their lawns, or visiting outdoors with neighbors.”

Chicago Tribune, Feb. 15, 1954
