Winter Past

We've been innundated with a lot of snow but nothing like the winter of 1967 here in northern Illinois.

I remember this well.


It shut down the city of Chicago for days.

This afternoon it took me 1-1/2 hours to plow the drive. I'll have to do it again before 10 p.m. when our son gets off work. The Farmer is snowed in up at the farm and the White Farm House. He'll hopefully make it home tomorrow.

Stay warm everyone.

I'd like some snow, but not that much!

My husband still talks about that winter storm in '67. His family has some awesome photos of their house then.

I'm sunning myself in South Carolina this Christmas - and am incredibly grateful to not be digging out of snow at the moment.

It sounds so strange to me Suzanne to hear you say you plowed....I've never had to do that kind of thing and wonder how I'd fare! But if it meant my son getting home from work you can bet I'd be out there giving it the old college try. :) Merry Christmas and blessings, marlene
