Wednesday, January 29, 1936

Cold snowed in forenoon
plesant in afternoon-
Mother good all day-
Done all the chores and got a basket of corn from corn house
Death from cold wave numbers 260* in U.S.
In New York State 16-



*Well, this answers the question lurking in the back of my mind from Monday's post. I was wondering if the 150 deaths Irene reported on Jan. 27th were local or national. Here we get national & state numbers.

Thanks for visiting this flashback to 1936. I'm sure Irene would be pleased! We'd love to hear from you.
