I remember it like it was yesterday. But it's been thirty years since our part of the country got hit by the Blizzard of '78. The 'B' is capitalized because it was a major event and around here, you don't even have to give the year it happened when you mention it in conversation. If you were an adult living in the midwest and experienced it, you know just what blizzard that was.
I blogged about it last year at this time and I won't repeat what I wrote then. You can just go here and read it. But on this very cold morning (it's 2°F at 10:30 a.m.) I'm remembering it all the same. Our local news has been having reports all week from citizens recalling their experiences.
My girls look at the pictures and hear us talk about it and they wish they'd been around to see it. We've not had a snowstorm like that one in the thirty years since and I don't know if I'll experience one like that ever again. But with all the crazy weather we've had in the last few years, maybe they will.
