Here at The Chicago Embroidery Company in the Windy City, we know a thing or two about snow. But while we just finished the least snowy January here in 117 years, we also celebrated the 50th anniversary of the city’s largest ever snowstorm, 23 inches on Jan. 25-26, 1967.
Our friends in Boise, Idaho, have been deluged with the white stuff this year, and have the right idea, commemorating the event with this cool Snowpocalypse embroidered patch.
This story, written by Katy Moeller of the Idaho Statesman, tells how the idea for a special patch came about. The woman who designed the emblem, Chrysa Rich, is selling the patches, with a portion of the proceeds going to charity.
