Thursday, March 19, 1936

Ice falling from trees
rained some at times-
I shovelled bushels of ice from flag stones-
Done all the chores and pulled limbs off from walks and path to corn house
got Aunty a bushel of corn
made apple pudding for dinner
Iliff came and took me to Ithaca and up home to see the storm*-
It is terrible-
Mother has been fine


*We are having quite the nasty winter (& nearly spring) in 2014 as well. Tonight I hit sleet when leaving work in Rensselaer, NY. By the time I crossed into Washington County it was sleet & snow. When I got to North Easton, NY it was mostly snow, but very slippery. I nearly went off the road on Bald Mountain Rd, just west of Fiddler's Elbow Road. Safe & sound now, blogging about 78 years ago.

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