It was the snow storm of "69 and Traffic was stopped we went out on foot to the store and they had no bread or milk, but we found a milk truck stuck in the snow and the driver sold his stuff out of the back of the truck. Carried home the milk and Mom decided to bake home made bread, We ate better than we normally ate that is for sure. Also my brothers made about $500.00 digging people out of their cars. Which was very good money for teenagers at that time. That storm brought people together as a communituy and us as a family.

We lived in a suburb of Kansas City, Mo., back around 1972 or '73. I was in college, there, and we had nine snows, and an ice storm that year. The power went out during the ice storm, but we were lucky, as our house was on the same circuit as the firehouse down the block, and we had power. My dad ran an extension cord across the street, and gave power to our neighbors! It was a big adventure to us. I don't think I would be as happy about it now!

I remember that snowstorm. At that time we lived in Wheeling, IL and I was a third grader delighted in snow days at school, homemade Toll House cookies and hot cocoa and making snow forts. We had a blast.

I'm originally from Baltimore, Md. and remember those wintry times. Staying in after shoveling was always rewarded with good hot meals. It seemed they warmed the soul, tasting better after a hard day working in the snow. I live in Georgia now and have been missing the winter for years.

I remember that blizzard, too. It was my sister's birthday on January 26th, and we were living in Chicago. It just kept snowing and snowing. School got cancelled for a few days. Shw thought it was the greatest bithday gift ever.
