Before noon it was evident that the schools would dismiss early and by 1:30 Huntley school chil¬ dren were home or on their way, not to return to classes until Monday. Some Huntley residents working or shopping in Elgjin. were unable to return home until Saturday and one who went to Chicago early Thursday was un¬ able to return before Sunday, be¬ cause of the heavy drifted snow which blocked all highways and hit the east-west roads particular¬ ly. Huntley had no mail service from Thursday morning until late Saturday, the newspapers from the east were not delivered because the trucks could not get out from the city. According to one account this storm reminded residenlts of a blizzard in 1936 when the street¬ cars could not run in Chicago and the only form of transportation was the elevated trains.
