It is Finally February 2011

As a young girl, I moved with my family from Lake Oswego, Oregon to Park Forest, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago in 1967. When 23 inches of snow fell in 1967 in Chicago, Illinois, I was living there, I was 9 years old. From there we moved for a second time to Bethesda, Maryland, I was still 9 years old then. The United States is experiencing a weather event of great proportions today. I now live in Southern New Hampshire. We just got another few inches of snow today possibly 6" already as part of this huge storm and we are to be getting more later on. This winter storm extends from Texas to Maine and many states in between as it sweeps up the map to the lakes and Chicago. Chicago may beat the record of the 1967 blizzard today when the storm passes through the windy city as they are called. We have too much snow from the previous storms of this winter. Where are we going to put all of this snow. Any suggestions?


  1. Eeek, I wonder if things are on a 40 year cycle :\ Our city doesn't seem to remove snow, it just pushes it out of the way!!

  2. Doris LOL Purple Pony my city pushes it too but you can only push so far.
